High House Bruton

Bruton, Somerset
Bed & Breakfast

Escape from London to arty, foodie Bruton. Feel at home instantly – comfortable rooms, the best breakfasts, terrace and pretty garden


2 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


A home full of antiques, lovely old wooden floors, colourful rugs, log fires and good art. An easy place to stay and Olivia, ex-London chef, gives you comfortable, peaceful bedrooms with robes, flowers, homemade biscuits and elderflower cordial; bathrooms with big drench showers are a treat too. Guests love the breakfasts! It’s served in the big, airy sitting/dining room by the window. Olivia bakes her own bread and drop scones and changes the cooked choice each day. A great base for exploring arty Bruton, visiting the schools (there are three), walking, cycling; Glastonbury, Wells and heaps of National Trust houses are nearby.

Our hostess was very welcoming and helpful and the room very comfortable. We loved the breakfasts and found Bruton a great place for exploring the area.

  • Within walking distance of the Hauser and Wirth gallery ,wander round the International art works and sculptures in the gallery or enjoy the Piet Oudolf garden then stop for coffee or a glass of wine in the Roth Bar
  • Enjoy a weekend in Bruton without the need of a car! There are plenty to do with emphasis on food,history and art,with interesting shops,bars restaurants to keep you busy.
  • The local towns of Frome ,Castle Cary and Sherbourne are interesting to visit and all have great food markets. The Bath and West Show ground is only 5 miles away offering events from Game Fairs to Flea Markets
  • Base yourselves in Bruton and visit many National Trust and English Heritage properties. Stour head with wonderful house and gardnes are a stones throw away while Lytes Cary,Barrington and Montecute are all a short drive.
