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 (20 minutes on foot).
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.
Babington House is a short drive away.
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.
Patwell House is a pretty three-bedroom Georgian town-house in the heart of Bruton, with a fine view of the 14th-century Church and the River Brue. The refurbishment of the house was designed by Thomas Conran and the walls are adorned with his personal art collection, including works by Roy Lichtenstein/ Chris Ofili/ Banksy/ Paul Slater/ David Hockney/ Eduardo Paolozzi/ Jamie Reid and Robert Crumb.
The interiors are an eclectic mix of modern and re-furbished original pieces… we loved the Victorian bath which can fit at least 2 people!
This is a wonderfully fun house and perfect for those looking for a vibrant and unusual place to stay.
