Local Information

Nearby Bruton 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 fabulous Hauser and Wirth contemporary art gallery is on the outskirts of Bruton and has a wonderful restaurant and garden, designed by Piet Oudolf.
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.
For good walks all year round head to King Alfred’s Tower or Cadbury Camp for wonderful views to blow away the cobwebs.

Our View

This is a beautiful family home on the Wiltshire/Dorset/Somerset border set within 60 acres of meadowlands. If you’re looking for somewhere to gather with extended family or friends then this house is perfect. The reception rooms are generous in size and all equipped with plenty of games! The dining room is fabulous for large dinner parties and we can put you in touch with a wonderful local chef. The interesting rooms are quirkily decorated with antique furniture and old oil paintings and colourful fabrics. Outside, the wild ponds are a lovely place to spend hazy summer days swimming and sunbathing. The yurt and awning next to one of the ponds makes a wonderful spot for an evening barbecue and sundowner.
The South-West facing garden has unrivalled views without a house in sight and there is also an enclosed sheltered yard garden to the east with morning sunshine perfect for yoga.
This house is not about glossy interiors and power showers, it’s wonderfully homely, and what it has in abundance is character. Some of the best holiday memories can be made here.
