For local shops and dining out, the picture-perfect village of Dunster with its historic castle is close at hand.  

For more days out, there’s nowhere quite like Exmoor National Park, with 267 miles of magnificent landscapes pulled straight from the setting of a romantic novel. Take a walk through the fields and find yourself in the open woodlands, sitting over peaceful brooks and curious wildlife. Look out for the ancient monuments in this paragon of natural beauty and make your way down to tranquil beaches in the endearing town of Minehead. You’ll even be able to venture down to the Quantock Hills and savour the Country’s original Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with legions of history, culture and stunning views. At night, gaze out at the matrix of constellations in the clear skies – as Europe’s first international Dark Skies Reserve, the skies will be crystal clear. You might even spot a shooting star to wish on!
