If approaching on the A396, A358 or A39, follow signs to Minehead. When you approach Dunster, the village will be signposted. Free Parking is available on the streets in the village, however space is limited and they are very busy in peak times. Alternatively there are 2 Pay & Display car parks, the smaller in Park Street (£4.70 – 24 hours) and a larger one on Dunster Steep (£4.70 – 24 hours). As well as this you can park in the National Trust car park in the grounds of Dunster Castle (free for members, daily charges in place for non-members).
