Local Information

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.
The long 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.

Our View

If you have been contemplating a visit to the trendy town of Bruton and it’s surrounding bucolic countryside, this lovingly restored 18th century cottage is the perfect place to explore from. A mixture of timber and stone, the house is set in a cobbled courtyard on a working dairy farm. Scented wisteria trails the front of the house during the spring months and the organic gardens are fabulous for lazy days on the lawn in summer. Inside, the house is bursting with character, the original flagstone flooring in the cosy sitting room, antique elm dining table and pure linen sheets all add to the charm.
If you don’t fancy venturing out, a brilliant local chef can be booked on request (please give plenty of notice) and can provide delicious suppers, picnics or delivered meals for you to heat through.
