What a find........a lovely Edwardian style building rising over the town of Dunster. Stayed two nights and enjoyed the peace and quiet of the location. The welcome from the owner was friendly and accompanied by tea and biscuits which was an unexpected gesture. The room was clean, spacious and reflected the character of the building. The breakfast was enticing from...

This B&B is situatied in a great location--high up with nice views and a beautiful well-kept garden with many varieties of plants. Breakfast was very nice with many homemade items, served by a genial host, who also offered us a ride to Minehead, since we were going there on the same morning as he was. The house animals were pleasant...

Recently spent 4 nights at Higher Orchard, Dunster and cannot rate it highly enough. Janet and Graham were so friendly - nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms were spotlessly clean, welcoming, the beds were very comfortable and the shower was good and powerful.

“We had the room with the toilet across the hall (shower and sink were in the room), but we soon got used to this and it was no inconvenience (there was a handy bathrobe hanging on the back of the door). Otherwise, I think the other rooms are all completely en suite.”
