This small 15th Century Hotel was used in Medieval times as a guest house by the Abbots of Cleeve.
Set in the only street in Dunster and within the Exmoor National Park, this sleepy hotel is an escapistís paradise. With its stylish, comfortable surroundings, the hotel boasts 5 individual four-poster beds out of the 28 bedrooms. They say that even insomniacs drift off to sleep to the sounds of the whispering monksí chants from 500 years ago.
Enter the bedroom and step back in time. Every room is unique and exquisitely furnished as if time had stood still. The magnificent four-posted beds are dwarfed by high ceilings and exposed oak beams. In he winter the open fires glow and a very warm atmosphere is created throughout the hotel.
There are two eating places to choose from in the intimate hotel. The Luttrell Arms Restaurant offers a more formal meal where the Head Chef, has created some exciting meals based on the best of modern British Cuisine. The Bar, styled as a traditional pub, serves meals that extend to the garden outside in the summer months for alfresco dining at its simplest and best.
Dunster is one of Somersetís best kept secrets set between Exmoor National Park and The Bristol Channel. The village skyline is dominated by the castle standing on a hill that rises 85 metres above the sea. The home of the Luttrell family over 600 years it is now a National Trust property.
