While you’re there
Minehead is a beautiful seaside resort on the North Somerset coast. Simply cross the road at the station and find yourself on the beach; or follow the esplanade along to the harbour and a wide array of shops.
Explore Dunster with its original yarn market and medieval castle, the largest in England. Run by the National Trust and dating back to the Norman times, it’s well worth a visit; and you can even save 20% on entry by showing your train ticket.
While changing between train and bus, take time to walk around this picturesque
village. Visit the splendidly restored watermill or the village’s 14th century church.
