The Paddock Garden, The Buttercross and The Italian Sunken Garden.

The house is named after the Buttercross, a famous medieval stone market cross dating from the late 14th Century. Once a meeting place in the High Street for the exchange of butter, in recent years it has been resited adjacent to the house and is today managed by English Heritage.

We are situated in the Exmoor National Park, close to the West Somerset Steam Railway. Dunster is steeped in history and has many interesting buildings and monuments to visit - for instance Dunster Castle, the Water Mill, Benedictine Priory Church, The Tithe Barn and of course The Buttercross itself.

Buttercross is an ideal base for touring Exmoor on foot, by car, bicycle or on horseback. There is a varied network of footpaths starting from the house leading to stunning views of Exmoor, Wales, the Quantock Hills, Grabbist Hill and the Bristol Channel.

We would love to see you for our Dunster by Candlelight week-end break.
