Dunster Castle Places to VisitDunster Castle

Dunster Castle and village is a great day out from Beachside Suites, being three miles away and only twenty minutes by bicycle. The village boasts a picturesque high street with it’s famous yarn market at the top and lots of quaint shops and pubs. The castle is wonderful to explore, with it’s grounds, stream and gardens, as well as many rooms full of interesting features – see if you can find the priest hole or the Ice House.

There is a working water mill (currently undergoing restoration), a packhorse bridge, St George’s church and many thatched cottages.

Porlock and Porlock Weir

Six miles away from Beachside Suites can be found the delightful village of Porlock. It can be easily reached by bus, car, bike – or by foot on the South-West Coastal Path.

Porlock has several small shops, old cottages and St Dubricius Anglican Church – parts of which date to medieval times.

Just over a mile further on, to the West, is the small harbour of Porlock Weir – just right for photographs of boats, cottages and the 14th century Ship Inn.
