Dunster Castle is dramatically sited on a wooded hill, a castle has existed there since at least Norman times, with an impressive medieval gatehouse and ruined tower giving a reminder of its turbulent history.

The castle that you see today became a lavish country home during the 19th century for the Luttrell family, who lived here for 600 years.

You can trace more than 1,000 years of history at Dunster Castle. Find out how it evolved from a Saxon stronghold into a comfortable Victorian home.
