Dunster Steam Railway Station is only a 5 minute walk away, hop on board and enjoy a journey along the West Somerset Coast taking in the beautiful scenery it has to offer. It is situated on a 50 acre site that is recognised as a nature reserve of great importance.

The beach is sand and pebble with natural sea-water pools and is ideal for bathing. The site is private with no traffic noise and has its own well stocked Shop, Putting Green (18 holes), Tennis Court, Bicycle hire, Laundrette and Refreshment Kiosk.

This beautiful chalet benefits from a light and airy sitting room with 3 seater leather pull out double bed, leather arm chair, tv/dvd, and choice of dvd's with door leading to the private south facing garden over looking the tennis court and lake. The kitchen features oven/hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and fully equiped with everything you will need for your holiday. The door leads out on to the front courtyard which is a perfect spot to watch the world go by. A tastefuly decorated double bedroom with freshly laundered linen and towels.

Dunster Beach is surrounded by great coastal and countryside walks. The site is situated on the Steam Coast Trail and West Somerset Coast Path which joins the South West Coast Path at Minehead. The West Somerset Coast Path extened in 2016, now runs for nearly 60 miles from Brean Down to Minehead. It forms part of the England Coast Path which is expected to be completed in 2020 when it will become one of the longest walking routes in the world. The South West Coast Path was created by H.M. Coastguards for patrolling the South West coastline on the lookout for smugglers and gives us the stunning path we can use today. The path was also used by fishermen looking for shoals of fish and for checking the sea conditions.

The South West Coast Path itself is 630 miles long and is the longest national trail in the United Kingdom. Starting just a short walk along the coast from Salad Days at Minehead it runs along the coastline of Exmoor, continuing along the coast of North Devon and on into Cornwall. It follows across the mouth of the River Tamar and back into Devon. After running along the south coast of Devon it then follows the Dorset coastline before ending up at Poole Harbour.

You can Enjoy Exmoor’s hospitality through the beauty of it’s changing seasons. Walk through woods or on the beach just yards from your chalet door and enjoy the wildlife that abounds on these shores. Comb the nearby beaches for fossils or study the array of birdlife and wildflowers that thrive on this coast.

Nearby you will find Cleeve Abbey, Dunster Castle, Porlock Weir and the many interesting sights and moorland walks of Exmoor. For more lively fun you can visit Minehead with its’ shops, supermarkets and Butlins where you can enjoy a Day Pass. The area is popular for sea fishing and there is trout fishing at Clatworthy and Wimbleball Lakes. There is golf available just next door at the Minehead Golf Club and for the Steam Railway enthusiasts there is a short walk to Dunster Station for easy access to the West Somerset Railway.

Facilities onsite include plentiful parking, a shop/café, putting green, nature reserve and tennis court.
