Priory Thatch Cottage is a unique property in a delightful situation in the historical village of Dunster - just a minute or two from the High Street which still allows you to enjoy the peace and tranquility of this lovely village! This cosy accommodation is all on one level and in a village where parking is at a premium, we are pleased to offer secure off-road parking for one car in the courtyard.
From the time we arrived until we left we could not have had a warmer and more caring welcome from our hosts Alison and Andy. It was as if we had been accepted as part of the family and were also invited to share the beautiful gardens and orchard.
The property itself was over and above what we expected and within very easy access to Duster. Parking off road was also a big bonus.
The cleanliness of the property was faultless and was also well furnished and kitted out so we wanted for nothing.
We have known the area for many years and there are so many places to explore.
We will definitely return in the not too distant future and would certainly recommend Prior Thatch.

It is generally recognised that Dunster is one of the most perfectly preserved medieval villages in England, with origins dating back to the times of Bronze and Iron Age Britain - it is a must for visitors to Exmoor!
Situated in a sheltered valley the north-east boundary of Exmoor National Park, the Yarn Market stands proud in the High Street as a reminder that Dunster was once an important centre for cloth manufacture. There are many attractive and historic features, fine thatched cottages, a 17th century watermill (which still grinds flour), a pack horse bridge spans the little river Avill and of course Dunster Castle. Today the village has a fabulous selection of restaurants, pubs and tearooms plus a wide range of independent galleries and shops which offer a first-class shopping experience - more than enough to keep you occupied for at least a whole day!
