Overview

Tucked away in a beautiful spot within Dunster Village the 57-tree Orchard provides a venue for traditional events such as Wassailing in January and a Village Picnic in July. It provides a beautiful setting for villagers and visitors to hold their own picnic and look out across Conygar, Dunster Village and the Bristol Channel.

If you want a pleasant and short walk go see this cross, situated in an orchard. It's probably not worth a special trip, but if you are walking in the area it's definitely worth adding this to your route.

You can take the footpath alongside the cross to Minehead, it goes downhill, past the wood towards the school farm centre, and then along the old road, now a walking road only, and into Alcombe, and then into Minehead, about 2 miles.
