The village of Dunster was first settled on the present site around 700AD and was first referenced in the Doomsday Book. At this time the village was called Torre. The centuries have carved out a unique little village which is considered the jewel in the crown of Exmoor National Park. Dunster is incredibly protected to ensure that it maintains its heritage. With over 200 grade 2 listed, 2 grade 1 and 2 grade 1* buildings Dunster is well preserved.


Yarn Market Hotel, 25 - 33 High St - Dunster - 01643 821425

The yarn market in the high street shows the village's wool trading heritage that held sway of the towns economy for hundreds of years. Naturally the story and history of Dunster is integrally linked with the history of the castle itself which is now owned and maintained by the national trust.

Dunster boasts a number of unqiue attractions and features. From the ancient high street to the old butter cross, the castle which towers over the village, the dolls museum and much more besides.

The high street is almost unchanged from images taken close to two centuries ago.
