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.
From the moment you lock eyes on this house you will fall in love, an enchanting property that dates back to the fourteenth century.
One of the longest thatched houses in England, and once a traditional farm house, it has been transformed by the owners. A long gravel drive leads you to the front of the building adorned with picturesque planters and the sound of birdsong.
The interior of the house has been exquisitely modernised, with art scattered across the property from an array of different era’s, giving each room a unique identity – our favourite spot is the conservatory, a tranquil place to sit in peace amongst the foliage to observe the wonders of nature unfold.
Nestled on the outskirts of an organic dairy farm, there is direct access to the free range chicken coop for collecting your eggs for breakfast or having unpasteurised milk straight from the herd of cows next door, it doesn’t get more wholesome than that.
Conveniently positioned a stones throw away from the groovy going’s on of Bruton life and so easy to hop in the car to get back to city life within two hours. You will leave your stay here dreaming of the cobbled courtyard, luscious green surroundings and magical atmosphere that the Long House brings with it.
