Dunster castle

We are making the most of the summer and long days. We are fortunate to live in the area with several National Trust properties and as National Trust members we have a free entry to all their properties in the country.
Yesterday we visited the Dunster Castle. The original castle dates to Norman times and parts of it have survived until now. Most of the other bulding was remodelled around 1870.









Many historical house have very similar interior, but I have taken just a few pictures of parts or items which interested me most.



Leather panels made out of calf skins.
A few picture from Dunster village.

  2. Lovely photos, we must visit there sometime.

    Have the NT changed their policy on interior photos then? It was always 'no photography' when I used to visit a fair number of NT properties a few years ago. Hope so....=)
