This beautifully upgraded historic cottage in pretty mediaeval Dunster can sleep six people in three bedrooms.The Oval is an historically fascinating, quirky cottage, believed to date from the 1400s in the pretty, mediaeval village of Dunster. Beautifully upgraded, the cottage can sleep six people in three bedrooms, a double with a four-poster bed and a door to adjoining shower-room, another double with an en suite bathroom and a twin. There's a comfortable sitting room with a wood burning stove in the fireplace, and a snug with comfy easy chairs - a quiet reading room. The smart oak-fitted kitchen has a breakfast/dining area and French windows to the courtyard. Outside is a small courtyard with table and chairs and a decked patio with fruit trees. Good for coast and country, The Oval is a lovely house in a beautiful village.
