Description

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Dunster - Old Priory Cottage, Dunster

Charming retreat, full of character and set in the heart of Dunster

Old Priory Cottage is a charming house, hidden from the road in a walled garden. It's in a unique and a very special setting - just a few minutes' walk from the High Street in Dunster and a stone's throw from some of Dunster's historic buildings including St George's church, the Dovecote and the Tithe Barn. The property was built in the 12th century as a small Benedictine priory. The front door opens into the sitting-room with beams, window seat and Victorian log-burner in an open fireplace. A door leads to the farmhouse kitchen with a large open fireplace, wooden flooring and beams. There is an unusually large cottage stairway leading to two bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

A door leads to the farmhouse kitchen with a large open fireplace, wooden flooring and beams. There is an unusually large cottage stairway leading to two bedrooms and a bathroom.
