Welcome to The High House Bruton

Olivia, Michael, Archie and Monty have been happily living and offering
Bed & Breakfast from their Victorian family home in the centre of Bruton for the past six years.

Bruton has plenty to offer whether your interests are art, architecture, food and lifestyle or maybe you just crave the peace and quiet of the countryside with just a few creature comforts thrown in. This small town has an array of interesting independent shops with plenty of cafes and restaurants.

Stroll around the medieval streets or “bartons” of the town making sure not to miss the ancient fourteenth century St Mary’s Church, the Dovecote and the wonderful Jacobean architecture of Sexey’s Hospital.

The Internationally renowned art gallery Hauser & Wirth Somerset has hosted many exhibitions by artists such as Louise Bourgois, Jenny Holizer and Elizabeth Frink. The wonderful garden planted by Piet Oudolf is a wonder in its own right and changes with the seasons. Hauser & Wirth also have a lovely intimate gallery on the High Street called Make with changing exhibitions and art for sale.

Your visit to Bruton would not be complete without taking in the view from the famous Dovecot, Packhorse Bridge and our very own ‘Man on a Bench’ sculpture.
