Day Trip to Dunster

Today's holiday outing was a day trip to Dunster, a gorgeous Somerset town full of wonderful buildings dating as far back as the 15th century.

The Yarn Market at the top of the High Street dates back to the 16th century and parts of the castle which overlooks the town are mediaeval.

All in all, it's a very pretty little place and, the icing on the cake, are the lovely shops dotted along the High Street!

Dinner this evening was courtesy of the mobile fish and chip van which comes to the village where we're staying once a week. I ate a whole piece of fish and about 10 chips; the fish was absolutely sublime; I wonder if we can come back next week for more?!
Here's a sort of view of the village from the barn we're staying in. I think you can just about make out the church tower among the trees on the horizon!


  1. Um...Justine, my treasure...will you be traveling to Chicago to meet me? huh...will ya??

  2. I love fish and chips. And only the English can make them just so.

  3. Beautiful! I love that they've built the road around the building. Very cool!

  4. Love the pics & Fish & Chips - Yum!!!

  5. I have very similar photos of that same spot from when I was there a few years ago. Cool. Mmm, love fish & chips.
