Dramatically sited on a wooded hill and the fortified home of the Luttrells for 600 years. Remodelled in the 1870s to create a splendid Victorian country house. A fine 17th- century carved staircase and ornate plaster ceilings. Terraced gardens with rare shrubs. From a feudal stronghold to a family home, this magnificent castle has breathtaking views over Exmoor and the Bristol Channel.

 

Discover how the Castle was used in its heyday and how the family hosted grand occasions from society balls to polo matches, with impressive interiors and lavish Victorian decoration. Then enjoy a leisurely stroll through beautiful terraced gardens, with a collection of palms, sub-tropical plants, and the Dunster Lemon tree.
