We went to Dunster beach, admittedly it was December and cloudy, but frankly I couldn’t see the attraction. Stony and muddy. I personally think Exmoor is about the walking not the beaches.

Lovely spot to fish from. Three generations of our family there together. Easy access, easy parking and facility to bbq. Toilets were ok as well. Plenty of rubbish bins and thankfully they were used as the place was rubbish free.

Taking a long weekend break at short notice we found ourselves here and had no regrets. A quiet complex with sea views in one direction and a beautiful lake, with bird life, in the other. Wake up in the morning and feed the ducks. If...More

This is much more of a quiet beach then others near by. Espically if you walk down a bit. Lovely rock pools to explore.
