Bruton is a highly fashionable and historic town that offers an eclectic, high calibre mix of boutiques, restaurants and hotels, whilst retaining a large number of more traditional shops and amenities.
The Town has been previously described in national press as “the new Notting Hill” and is probably most famed for being home to the world renowned Hauser & Wirth contemporary art gallery which boasts the popular Roth Bar and Grill within its grounds. The town benefits from numerous amenities including: a doctors surgery, pharmacy, vet, post office, several mini supermarkets, fuel station and numerous independent shops. Particularly noteworthy establishments within the town include At The Chapel, a bakery/restaurant/meeting space and hotel and the newest addition to the town which is Osip, at Number One Bruton; a much talked-about ‘farm-to-table` restaurant owned by a famous Michelin starred chef.
Bruton is well placed for many of the West Country’s well known independent schools including: Bruton School for Girls, Sexeys, Kings Bruton, Downside, Millfield, Sherborne, Wells Cathedral, Hazlegrove, Port Regis and All Hallows. Bruton and Upton Noble Primary Schools are also close by as well as Ansford Academy.
Transport links from Bruton are a huge attraction to the town, with the A303 providing a direct route to London via the M3 and there is a mainline rail service from Bruton to London Paddington and also the new train to Waterloo. Airports in Bristol and Exeter offer connections within the UK, Europe and beyond.
WHY WE LOVE BRUTON: It’s easy to see why the demand for Bruton is so strong; the town has wonderfully combined a historic core with a contemporary and fashionable flair to it. We are particularly fond of the brunch on offer at the chapel and the cocktails that are so skilfully mixed at the Roth bar and Grill.
