The modest town of Bruton is nestled amongst Somerset hills, with the River Brue quietly winding through its centre. The town’s narrow streets are lined with trim stucco and stone houses and shop fronts, and in the distance, the Bruton Dovecote accents a prominent hilltop. In the early morning haze, a soft glow forms around this 16th Century limestone tower, cutting a solitary figure that’s seemingly watching over the settlement below.
On the High Street is At the Chapel: A restored Medieval chapel that is now a bakery, wine shop, café, bar and restaurant with eight, beautifully designed bedrooms above. Here, a lack of pretense prevails and the focus is on comfort, quality, and an effortless style. Down the road you’ll also find lifestyle store and café, Caro, as well as international art gallery Hauser & Wirth.
