My husbad is particularly fond of Dunster. He's from the West Country and, although we're now extremely happy Australians, we both harbour yearnings for the old places.

What a lovely castle. I still remember my visits to castles in Britain when I went many years ago.

Very nice T images. Towers and turrets we don't see in the states, so this is a real treat.

Thank you for the views of Dunster, it was fifty years ago this year that our family first went to this village when we stayed in a chalet on Dunster Beach.

Have been back many times and would wish to do so again. Very good meals in what was the Methodist church, next door to St. George's Anglican church.

We tried to patronise the independent shops, especially for food and to avoid the supermarket in Minehead. The WI weekly market was good too so the nearest to a chain store we used was the Co-op.
