We're open for longer

Women enjoying a hot drink

Garden, Watermill, Shop, tea-room and tours of the castle - there's still plenty to do at Dunster Castle and Gardens this winter.

More to explore

Take in new views as trees shed their leaves and visit the rare double overshot watermill in the River Garden. Learn about the history of Dunster Castle, from a Motte and Baily castle to a comfortable Victorian home with our exhibition in Tennant's Hall and if you're brave enough head to the crypt and see if you can spot our resident ghost.

The Watermill Tea-room 

The tea-room will be selling warming winter treats, the perfect stop off after a walk.

The Stables Shop

Brimming with delightful surprises there's always something new to discover in our shop.

The Castle

Normally closed for conservation work, you can go through closed doors on a castle tour. Each tour will vary, taking in the conservation work happening that day. Places are limited and can not be pre-booked. 

The Watermill

Recently restored, there has been a mill at Dunster since the medieval period. This rare double overshot mill is open daily*  where you can see  the wheels turning and on some days milling flour.

The site is open every day* 10am - 5pm or dusk if earlier

*closed 24 & 25 December
