Your Salad Days


These are the halcyon days of your youth, those carefree days, the fun packed sunny summer days of jam sandwiches and ice cream, exploration and discovery when you giggled and smiled your way through rock pools, streams and sand. When you were excited yet chilled, you wanted for nothing and had no worries, you slept soundly and woke up every morning ready for the next big adventure. 
Our mission is all about making people happy. What better way to do this than in a quintessential British beach hut with all its charm, fun, colour and nostalgia, add to this all the luxury associated with a 5 star boutique hotel, wrapped up in the tranquil magical place that is Dunster Beach. In these surroundings you can’t help but relax and unwind, surrounded by birds and bunnies, steam trains and castles, coastline and hills and all the beauty that Somerset offers.
Our aim is to create memories and allow our guests to relive some of their own Salad Days.

Dunster Beach started life in the roaring 1920's by Lady Luttrel who resided at Dunster Castle. She had the first beach hut installed for her personal use, then a few more were built to be rented out, a few years later a second row (where Salad Days is located) was added. During World War II it housed Coastal Defence Workers and the Home Guard building the coastal fortifications, Dunster Beach had slit trenches, barbed wire and pillboxes, although now gone the pillboxes remain as a reminder of darker days at Dunster Beach.
Today it offers a charming escape from modern life. Relax and unwind at Salad Days Beach Hut.
