This Grade II listed, double fronted cottage occupies a position in the heart of the sought-after historic medieval village of Dunster, within the Exmoor National Park and just three miles from Minehead.

The three-bedroom property has a rich history dating back to the 1600s and many of its characterful features have been lovingly restored by the current owners. Inside, the house is beautifully presented and has benefitted from a full refurbishment.

On the first floor, there are three bedrooms and a well-appointed family bathroom with a free-standing bath and a separate walk-in shower. The principal bedroom

benefits from an original feature fireplace and an ensuite bathroom. Wonderful distant views of the church and castle can be seen from the first floor.

Outside, a charming cabin sits at the top of the garden that could be used as a home office, gym or studio. Next to this is a sun terrace from where it is possible to take in the stunning views over Dunster, the castle and the surrounding countryside. The remainder of the large garden is mainly laid to lawn with the bonus of a vegetable patch.
