The nearest 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 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.
The Newt in Somerset is a newly opened estate with magnificent walled gardens, a glasshouse, farm shop, restaurants and cafe. A wonderful day out- not to be missed.
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.
This is the perfect place to stay if you’re looking for a break away from the heat of the city in summer. The emerald, unspoiled countryside is medicine for the soul and the house is a picture-perfect family home built of the local honey-coloured stone.
Inside, a homely kitchen complete with cosy Aga and Cornishware crockery is instantly welcoming. The ground floor is laid out with generous, comfortable rooms, big comfy sofas, beautiful sash windows and wood-burning stoves. Upstairs the bedrooms have wonderful views over the open countryside, we loved the beautiful bathroom covered in Marthe Armitage paper.
Outside, the greenhouse/ outdoor dining area is a stroke of genius. Imagine candlelit suppers on a hot summers evening with friends or family, chatting till the stars come out.
The owners have cleverly kitted the house out with everything you need to keep the children happy too- football pitch, bikes, croquet, ping pong- the list goes on!
