Scott Williams’ home town of Bruton has fast become the coolest destination in the South West. Always a mecca for artists and creatives, gallerists Hauser and Wirth added the final polish when they opened a fabulous contemporary art gallery on the site of a disused 17th century farm. (Bruton Art House sits within the grounds.) The amazing garden by famous garden designer Piet Oudolf sits towards the back of the gallery.
Eat at the restaurant on site, the Roth Bar and Grill, which serves delicious food all day long.
Bruton high street is home to a plethora of fascinating independent shops and restaurants and a beautiful river walk takes you on a circuit of the historic town and outlying countryside.
Nearby, The Newt in Somerset is definitely worth a visit- a fabulous walled garden specialising in unusually trained apple trees, working cider press, glasshouse, farm shop (but not as you know it), bakery and restaurant.
For children there is the Mill on the Brue outdoor activity centre, archery, rafting, canoeing and abseiling are just are few of the activities on offer.
The Stourhead estate- filming location for ‘Pride and Predjudice’ is a short drive away – the famous lake and grounds are not to be missed in autumn when the landscape is ablaze with colour.
Renovated by Argentinian architect Luis Laplace, the the Grade II listed buildings are full of character and bold innovative twists. It celebrates the natural antiquity of the building combining original fittings with unexpected interiors and vintage furniture completed by unique artworks from Hauser & Wirth’s artists including a specially commissioned painted mural in the dining room by Guillermo Kuitca, and a mesmerising video installation by Pipilotti Rist which projects the Somerset landscape onto the walls of the sitting room through a chandelier of found objects and glass.
This is a completely unique place to stay.
