free parking in the village High Street, but space is
limited. There are lots of spaces in the large Pay-and-Display car
park on the approach to the village (adjacent to Dunster
Steep, see map below). It costs £4 to park there for the day, and is about
a 5 minute stroll to the Barn (via The Ball and Priory
Green). Alternatively, we've kindly been
given permission to park overnight in the Dunster Castle grounds, using
the National Trust car park at the top of the driveway
accessed directly off of the A39. Parking here is £2 all day. Once parked, you can make
your way down toward the Garden and Barn via Church Street, about a 10 minute
