Charterhouse, also known as Charterhouse-on-Mendip, is a small hamlet in the Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
Before it became a town, North Petherton was the largest village in England.

There are delights at every turn in Dunster, whether it be the castle on the hill with its magnificent stables or the packhorse bridge and working watermill. It is hardly surprising that in one of the most intact medieval villages in Britain there is so much to explore and hidden gems around every corner such as the Prior’s Dovecote, Tithe Barn and a church containing the longest Rood screen in the country. Set amid lush rolling fields that slope towards the sea, Dunster boasts picture-perfect houses, beaches, an ancient hilltop castle, and a quintessentially Somerset high street.
