My first ever visit despite coming to Dunster for over 40 years. A pamphlet inside explains why doves were kept here, I will not spoil the surprise! Located at the back of the historic St Georges church.

This is tucked away from most of the attractions in Dunster. It is in really good condition and is the first dovecote I have seen with the wooden central bit inside which made it very interesting

Situated across the road from the north side of the church is the fascinating restored Dovecote. It will not take a few minutes to look inside the open door of this building and walk in the garden area. There is a pocket for an information...More

This lovely old dovecote has been beautifully restored to its former glory and stands amongst other restored buildings. The door is usually open so that you can see the interior. It doesn't take very long to visit it, but its well worth the effort.

The visit to the Dovecote reminds you of how the wealthy and well connected got fresh meat through the winter. Although only a short visit, it was very interesting.

This was the first dovecote I had seen and for a free and accessible attraction it was quite good. Of course it doesn't take long to see and look at but the information board, coupled with the restored building made it worthwhile.

The dovecote is set in a lovely but small garden. There is no entry into it but you can look inside from the doorway and read the history of it. It is worth planning your walk to see it.
