Knowle Manor, England–May 29 – June 5, 2015



We’re going to KNOWLE MANOR in Dunster, England. Knowle Manor is a historic estate situated on 100 acres of spacious gardens and lakes. The house is located in the medieval town of Dunster, two miles from the coast.

Dunster is one of the most popular places on Exmoor for visitors. It is a medieval village with an ancient castle, priory, dovecote, yarn market, inns, packhorse bridge and a mill. Since the decline of the woollen industry in the eighteenth century the village has been locked in a time warp.

Dunster Castle, once the home of the Luttrell family, is now owned by the National Trust. The Luttrell family arrived in England in 1066, with William the Conqueror’s army at the battle of Hastings. There is a plethora of tea shops and gifts shops and several excellent restaurants and places to stay. The National Park Centre here provides information on the whole area and there is a large car park on the edge of the village.

With over 200 listed buildings Dunster is preserved so that generations to come can enjoy the historic qualities of this unique village. Situated in the sweeping hills of Exmoor National park Dunster provides the ideal base for your holiday in the South West of England.
