It was a bit of a dull day weather wise so decided to visit Dunster castle. Got a friendly and warm welcome from all the national trust volunteers. Took the Victorian kitchen tour which was very interesting. Was even invited to play snooker in the...More

The previous post is correct, however there is a shuttle which goes up to the castle from the car park and there are extensive areas of level ground around the castle itself with some beautiful views.
