On first entering Dunster Beach site you will feel like you are stepping back in time to a simpler, more peaceful world, where nature, the sea, hills, animals and birds hold your attention and you feel the stress and strain of modern day life drifting away.
Dunster Beach is a collection of charming historic beach huts built nearly 100 years ago which externally exhibit little sign of the 21st century, where you are compelled to sit back relax and unwind.
The site is privileged to be surrounded by, on one side the stunning Somerset coastline and on the other a tranquil lake and nature reserve both with an abundance of wildlife.

Dunster Beach is a bird lovers paradise with native and migratory birds, so whether you want to purchase a bag of bird seed from the shop and just feed the ducks and geese on the lake, watch the resident heron dive for his dinner or if you want to get your binoculars and view the flocks of sea birds feeding at the shoreline, Dunster Beach has something for all who appeciate wildlife.
Take a walk around the well-stocked lake and nature reserve, which is easily accessible with well laid bark paths, stop off at the butterfly garden and take in the coastal fauna and flora along the beach and dunes. With the sound of steam trains in the background and views of Dunster Castle and Exmoor beyond, the site is something very special and unique. Once you have discovered this little Somerset gem, like us, you will want to return time and time again.

Salad Days has its own recycling box which is collected every Saturday between 9:00 - 13:00
The recycling box takes: bottles, jars, glass (not broken), cans, newspapers, magazines, cardboard, and foil.
Behind the shop, the site has its own recycling centre where green waste can also be taken. We would encourage all our guests to use this facility. The site also recycles green waste to maintain the nature reserves paths, it has an ethos of give away or re-use, rather than throw away, so always check with one of the maintenance team working around the site.
Other on site facilities include a laundry room, kiosk for ice creams and takeaway food, fully accessible toilet and shower blocks, tennis court, picnic and BBQ areas. Next to the main car park is a mini golf course and for a full round, next to Dunster Beach is Minehead & West Somerset Golf Club, which welcomes guest members.
