Take this and follow the road for 300m, and then take the right fork at Bonnington Cottage. Nutcombe Bottom Car Park is approx. 200m on the left.

When at Nutcombe Bottom car park, follow the easy going path at the bottom of the car park until you reach Broadwood Road. Head to the right, and take the first left for the Tall Trees Trail.

The Tall Trees trail is designed to allow people to stroll amongst giant and interesting trees, including the tallest tree in england, and the tallest magnolia in England.

Additional notes:

The Tall Trees trail is a facility provided on the Dunster Estate, owned by the Crown Estate, and is designed as an all abilities trail.

The trail is wide enough for buggies and wheelchairs to pass, the surfacing is very smooth and suitable for both from the car park, and the slope is no more the 12% over the whole length of the trail.

In the near future the trail will be complemented by information about the trees and interactive interpretation designed for children and the visually impaired.

The Crown Estate welcomes families and community groups to come and explore and enjoy the Tall Trees Trail, and the beautiful surroundings of the Dunster Estate.
