Dunster is a bustling village comprised of several restaurants, pubs and tea rooms, plus a varied range of independent shops. There is a cash point directly opposite (there may a charge for using it) or the Post Office can dispense cash over the counter (free of charge) during opening hours. Minehead is the nearest town, approximately 1.5 miles from Dunster. Here you will find the larger supermarkets and petrol stations (Tesco and Morrison's are both situated on the outskirts of the town and have long opening hours), most major high street banks with cash machines, plus a range of other shops throughout the town. There is a tourist information centre in Dunster, just beside Dunster Steep near the Pay & Display car park. There is another tourist information centre in Minehead on The Avenue (TA24 5AY).
Dunster has been essentially preserved in time as a relic of the 600-year age when both the town and castle were owned by the Luttrells family. These days the town practically breathes history, from the turrets and towers of the originally Norman castle to the octagonal yarn mark...et that is a throwback to the town’s 1700s heyday, when it was most renowned for its production of wool and particular cloth named “Dunster's”. Although the origins of the village of Dunster date back to the times of Bronze and Iron Age Britain, it was the cloth-making industry that was in fact responsible for the town’s initial wealth and fame. Indeed, although the settlement’s first market can be traced back to 1222, it was the construction of the town’s iconic octagonal yarn market by Geoffrey Luttrell in 1601 that truly spearheaded the burgeoning woollen industry in the area. That very market still stands today, complete with a visible cannon ball hole that dates back to the damage sustained by the structure during a 5-month siege of Dunster Castle in the Civil War. The castle was a centre of military activity during the war, with both sides keen to ensure control of a fortress with such significant strategic and locational value. Dunster is a now bustling village comprised of several restaurants, pubs and tea rooms, plus a varied range of independent shops. Many of the shops in Dunster are open during traditional hours of 9 am to 5 pm, although hours are often extended during the summer season. Conversely, some shops may also reduce their opening days and/or hours out-of-season.
