About Jackdaw Cottage


Jackdaw Cottage is a beautiful old weaver's cottage located in Bruton's historic conservation area. 

It has two bedrooms (one with a king size bed and one with two singles), bathroom, living room, spacious fully equipped kitchen diner, wood burners, downstairs cloakroom, a lovely cottage garden and parking.

Bruton is a lovely, buzzy, small town in South Somerset in the UK, with an arty vibe.

It is easily accessible by road from the A303 and by train from London. 

(Paddington to Castle Cary or Waterloo to Gillingham, Dorset)


Art galleries, cafes, restaurants, pubs, independent shops, wonderful local produce, craft beer and cheese are all abundant in the town or nearby.

Bruton is also surrounded by beautiful, unspoiled countryside and is well placed for visiting other areas of particular beauty such as the Mendip Hills, the Quantocks, Cranborne Chase, West Wiltshire Downs, the Cotswolds as well as interesting towns and cities such as Bath, Bristol, Frome, Wells, Sherborne and Bradford upon Avon.
