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.
