Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Exmoor National Park / Dunster / Historic Sites / Dunster Castle
A medieval castle and manor house, Dunster Castle has been gradually redecorated over the years in an effort to restore the former glory of its rooms. You'll see reproductions of the original wallpaper, furniture, and building materials, all created through the meticulous effort of the National Trust. Not much of the original medieval castle still stands, with the exception of the Great Gatehouse and the 13th-century gate. Popular artifacts include a Tudor copy of the allegorical portrait of Sir John Luttrell and a sequence of leather tapestries depicting Antony and Cleopatra. Music lovers are often intrigued by a piano that once belonged to Vivian Ellis. Outside, bask under the leaves of the strawberry tree collection in the gardens. Put Dunster Castle into our Dunster holiday planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Dunster.

There is a lot to see. We are going back for a 2nd visit as didn't get to see all that is on offer.
Beautiful place. A must Visit for any one in the area of North Somerset.
Great day out with lots to see. Loved that they were doing tours even out of season and whilst renovating so we could still see the castle.
Beautiful country and the views from the castle are glorious
