“Excellent all round.”

“Beautiful and interesting old house. We have been holidaying with the same group of friendsfamily for far longer than I care to remember, and we all agreed that this was one of the best houses we have stayed in. Previous reviews have mentioned the lack of showers (plenty of baths), so we were prepared for that, but struggled with the need to stagger baths. This was difficult with our party of 89, so if you were the maximum of 12, some would need to manage without in the morning if you want to get out at a reasonable time. Stairs to three of the four upstairs bedrooms are tricky, but the two downstairs bedrooms are probably the best in the house, so cater well for anyone less agile. None of this would stop me booking as the house is otherwise so comfortable and full of character. Communication with owners ahead of arrival was clear and very helpful. The beds were very comfortable.”

“What a fabulous place to stay ! The manor was the perfect base for our family to spend time all together comfortably , along with our two dogs, who settled instantly and remained that way the whole time . We all enjoyed a relaxing and stress free break due to the fact that there is so much space . Our 5 granddaughters loved that they had so many spaces to explore and play , we basically only saw them we they were hungry ! The books and dvds are a great idea too . Its an extremely interesting and beautiful building, especially the chapel , we all agreed that theres a real sense of peace in there . We have booked to stay again in the summer and are all really looking forward to spending time outdoors in the lovely gardens and orchard.”

“Excellent location and unique property. Very spacious. We enjoyed the character and furnishings of the old manor. It was well equipped. As expected with an older listed property the water pressures in the bathrooms were 'hit and miss' and there was only one shower.We walked into the historic village of Dunster and along the beach to Minehead.”

“Excellent venue for friends family gatherings. Large communal rooms and large bedrooms. Kitchen facilities are good for preparing meals and there's enough space to have a quiet few moments if needed.”

“This Manor House looks amazing in the photos but in reality it is even better! It has character and comfort and has everything you could ask for. Great location Dunster is beautiful, lovely walks from the house and so much to do close by. We wouldnt hesitate to stay here again.”

“The house is truly unique, set in extensive gardens with its own orchard . Rooms are spacious and well furnished bedrooms are huge ! With big beds bathrooms are plentiful, the kitchen with its electric Aga was a pleasure to use and we were there as fruit from the garden was ripe for the eating cue apple pies and plums. We BBQd and ate outside in the sunshine , walked into Minehead for a pint of Cider and an ice cream , climbed the short hill to Dunster castle and wandered round its quaint village stopping to taste gin and have a coffee in one of the shop cafes. The house happily afforded space for grown ups and teens and thoroughly enthralled the 7 year old who was fascinated by the little chapel and the huge garden .”
