About Barefoots Orchard

Barefoots Orchard is a charming Bed & Breakfast using solar energy to off-set the increased occupancy of our home.

We are situated in the historic town of Bruton in Somerset opposite the twin towered church and convenient for the railway station and the town.

Bruton is home to Kings School, Bruton School for Girls and Sexeys School.

In the High Street is Sexey's Hospital, an historic Alms House.

The High Street is also home to a variety of eating places - The Sun Inn, with an interesting Persian food menu, The Castle pub, Truffles Bistro, and the award winning At the Chapel.

A few hundred yards from Barefoots Orchard is the Roth Bar and Grill and Hauser and Wirth International Art Gallery at Durslade Farm with interesting exhibitions, gardens and many facilities for visitors. Five minutes drive away is The Newt in Somerset with it's fascinating garden and welcoming restaurant.
