Dependent on school holidays and the Covid 19 situation!
House in medieval Dunster, on Exmoor, with stunning views and easy access to village, coast and moor.
We are looking for exchanges during school holidays from October 2020 and in 2021, although obviously things are very fluid at the moment, hence the lack of detailed dates. Please contact us if you like what you read below even if you aren't on our destinations list; we are happy to try different areas!
Our home has 3 double bedrooms. It is in a cul de sac with parking. We do not have pets because Geoff has an allergy and we work. If you decide to stay here you must appreciate the country side, historical surroundings and the view over the church and village. It is very quiet here and public transport is limited, so a car is useful though not essential.
The house has been fully modernised and has central heating, plus a gas fire in the lounge. The kitchen is large and well equipped because we both enjoy cooking and spend much of our time there! All the rooms have superb views of either the village, the hills or the sea and are comfortably furnished. In the lounge is a wide screen TV with Sky reception and an ipod dock.. Free wi fi is available and you are welcome to use our laptop.
There is a small garden and lawn where you can sit out/barbecue if the weather is suitable, all the necessary equipment is in the shed.
The situation is idyllic, we love it here and are certain you would as well if you like country life and historic surroundings; a love of walking will also be an advantage as our back gate leads straight on to the moor where there are many beautiful walks to be enjoyed of all lengths and difficulty.
Dunster has many pubs and restaurants and one grocery/delicatessen as well as all the usual tourist shops etc., so you can get all you need here without having to drive. However all the larger stores/supermarkets are further afield so a car is an advantage although not essential; also it will enable you to see more of Exmoor, much of which is "off the beaten track".
There is public transport but much of it is seasonal and does not reach all the interesting villages and tourist spots.

Dunster is a Mediaeval village featuring various buildings from the period e.g. The Castle; Pack Horse Bridge; Yarn Market; Folly and cobbles!
Dunster is on the West Somerset Railway route (the longest independent preserved railway) where steam trains are a regular feature. The sea (the tidal Bristol channel) is within a short walk and the hills (all sign posted and easy access walking) are at the back door of the house.
Amenities are within 2 miles (by that we mean a supermarket, minor injuries hospital, pharmacist and ATM).
Our house, with parking for 3 cars is an ideal centre for exploring the village and Exmoor, one of the most beautiful National Parks where outstanding walks can be enjoyed.
