Perched high above the surrounding countryside, Dunster Castle appears the archetypal English fortress. The castle certainly has its origins in defence – the site was established as a stronghold by one of William the Conqueror’s knights – but it has evolved over the years to be much more than it first appears.

The gardens also surprise and delight, their relaxed informality contrasting with an exterior of towers and battlements. First impressions of Dunster Castle, Watermill and Gardens are powerful and lasting, but we hope this guide will show you past the defensive walls and into a softer interior, where the Luttrell family made a castle their home.
