Dramatically sited on top of a wooded hill, a castle has existed here since at least Norman times, with an impressive medieval gatehouse and ruined tower giving a reminder of its turbulent history. Home of the Luttrell family for more than 600 years, the present building was remodelled in 1868–72 by Antony Salvin. The fine oak staircase and plasterwork ceiling he adapted can still be seen. Visitors can relax on the sunny sheltered south terrace, which is home to a variety of subtropical plants. Panoramic views over the surrounding countryside and moorland complete the experience.

Dunster, Minehead, Somerset. TA24 6SL. Tel. 01643 823004
