  • Road from A303 (5.0 miles)

    If driving east bound on A303, take "Tinker's Hill" turnoff, which is signposted "Shaftesbury B3081, Blandford (A350)". The second signposting indicates "Bruton, Gillingham, Charlton Musgrove, Stoke Trister, B3081".

    Once off the A303, the next turn is very soon, to the right, and then turn left. You should now be on the B3081. Continue until a right turn signposted Bruton, just after Hunter's lodge. Follow the signs to Bruton. The B3081 is very twisty with some sharp turns. Around 2.5 miles from the Hunter's Lodge turn off, there is a Give Way signposted Bruton, at which you need to turn right to continue on the B3081 into Bruton.

    Once in Bruton follow the one way system round to the High street: you will pass the church on your left, Kings school, then turn right at the "T" junction (towards "Town Centre"), past the Texaco garage on left, and bear right onto the High street.

    At the "T" junction of the High street with the A359/Quaperlake street (the library in front of you), sharp turn left down Coombe Street.

    Follow Coombe Street up the hill, bear left and down and you will see our driveway at the bottom of the hill.

    Follow the driveway down through to the car park. We'll meet you there with the keys. Please feel free to call us if needed.

  • Road from Bath (20.0 miles)

    If arriving from Bath, follow the A36 towards "Warminster A36, Frome (A361)" until just past Beckington. At the roundabout signposted "Southampton, Salisbury, Warminster A36, Frome (A361)" take the third exit towards "Southampton, Salisbury, Warminster A36, Frome (A361)".

    Continue on the A361 until the Nunney Catch roundabout. At the Nunney Catch roundabout turn left onto the A359. The signpost indicates "Bruton".

    Follow the A359 through Wanstrow and into Bruton.

    As you approach Bruton centre, make a sharp right onto Coombe Street/B3018. At this turn, the Blue Ball Bruton is in front of you, the town library on your left.

    Continue up Coombe Street, bear left and down the hill. You will see our driveway at the bottom of the hill sign posted "On The Brook".

    Follow the driveway down through to the car park. We'll meet you there with the keys. Please feel free to call us if needed.
