The Luttrell Arms Hotel
“Relaxed and welcoming hospitality and a pleasant ambience” - AA Inspector
Our Inspector's view
This charming and privately owned hotel is located in the heart of the picturesque village of Dunster, right next to the famous Yarn Market. With parts dating back to the 15th century, the hotel offers plenty of character and quality throughout. Bedrooms and bathrooms come in a range of shapes and sizes including some with four-poster beds. Guests can enjoy a drink with the locals in the friendly bar or, in warmer weather, relax in the pleasant garden to the rear. Both dinner and breakfast are highlights, offering a range of carefully-prepared dishes utilising much local produce.

About the area
Somerset means ‘summer pastures’ – appropriate given that so much of this county remains rural and unspoiled. Ever popular areas to visit are the limestone and red sandstone Mendip Hills rising to over 1,000 feet, and by complete contrast, to the south and southwest, the flat landscape of the Somerset Levels. Descend to the Somerset Levels, an evocative lowland landscape that was the setting for the Battle of Sedgemoor in 1685. In the depths of winter this is a desolate place and famously prone to extensive flooding. There is also a palpable sense of the distant past among these fields and scattered communities. It is claimed that Alfred the Great retreated here after his defeat by the Danes.
Away from the flat country are the Quantocks, once the haunt of poets Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth. The Quantocks are noted for their gentle slopes, heather-covered moorland expanses and red deer. From the summit, the Bristol Channel is visible where it meets the Severn Estuary. So much of this hilly landscape has a timeless quality about it and large areas have hardly changed since Coleridge and Wordsworth’s day.
