Pilgrim | Luxury Self-Catering Cottage | Bruton, Somerset


Bruton, Glastonbury, Somerset, UK

Honey-hued in appearance and sweet in nature, Pilgrim embodies the very essence of English country-cottage chic. Idyllically situated near Bruton and close to new age Glastonbury, this luxury self-catering cottage in Somerset is a year-round paradise, complete with roaring fire and outdoor swimming pool. Bundle up your loved ones and create family memories to last a lifetime. 


Quietly tucked away down a winding lane near the up-and-coming village of Bruton, Pilgrim offers a warm welcome to guests looking for some peaceful rejuvenation. The charming cottage windows reveal a pastoral landscape of rolling hills and views over the Vale of Somerset; a welcome tonic for guests cutting free from city living. With its classic country-style interiors as well as a cinema room, spacious gardens and access to a solar covered outdoor swimming pool, this luxury self-catering retreat in rural Somerset truly does have it all.


What better way to start the day than in Pilgrim’s gorgeous country kitchen, planning the day's adventures over a leisurely breakfast? After a hike to the top of Glastonbury Tor, whip up some buttered popcorn before settling down for a classic movie night in the first floor cinema room. Ensuring everyone has somewhere ultra-cosy to lay their head, there is one double bedroom and one twin. Each bedroom is home to fine crisp linens and sink-into beds, with farmhouse-style doors and stripped wooden, original floors.


To the front of this bucolic paradise, Pilgrim has an enclosed cottage garden where a well-tended lawn offers the perfect spot for a sun-drenched game of croquet. Here you'll also find succulent fruit trees and an al fresco dining area where watching the last of the day’s rays with a cold tipple in hand is all but mandatory. Beside the cottage is the outdoor swimming pool, a peaceful place for floating without a care in the world under the sun. Chill on a lilo or work up a sweat, depending on where the mood takes you.

From the owner

“Pilgrim absolutely bowled me over with its rural charm, idyllic location and grace. If you were to conjure up the perfect rural escape, this would be it!”

From the owner

Away from the stresses of city and work life, we invite you to cut free from your daily routine to relax and enjoy time out – a slice of luxury in the middle of the Somerset countryside.

Slip on a pair of wellingtons from the hall and walk for miles (or to the local pub!) before returning for a dip in the pool. Sit on the terrace with a glass of wine watching the sun set over the hills or cosy up on a winter's evening for a kitchen supper by the Aga.

With flagstone floors and comfortable rugs, a huge array of books and original contemporary paintings and vintage mirrors, the sitting room is the ideal spot to curl up on the sofa. Watch a film or relax in front of the fire with one of a selection of board games on a winter’s day.

To See


Bruton is a bit of a one-off and dubbed ´The Notting Hill of the South West´. Miles from anywhere, it’s a tiny place buzzing with activity. Independent shops, chapels and buildings hug one another, so although it stands in the middle of rolling hills, it has a very special character.

Guest Testimonials

What a house! The cosiest little home that we curled up in the whole time. It was cold weather so the fire and the cinema room really made the holiday. So many wonderful things to keep the children happy the whole time and such a beautiful hideaway with gorgeous gardens to play in. We were only too happy being ´stuck indoors´. Plus, it´s the best house ever for hide and seek - the secret staircase was such a hit! Great fun! Thank you.

We have been so lucky with the weather! We played tennis and swam in the pool. A beautiful cottage in a stunning location. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch, thank you. We hope to come back one day!

We have had the most lovely week, it was absolute bliss, the house is effortlessly stylish, clean and homely. Fresh beautiful flowers, lovely towels and a comfy bed. Thank you.

Thank you for the most wonderful stay. It was the perfect mini break, in a gorgeous cottage which was so comfortable. Many thanks also to the owner for their warm hospitality.

Such a beautiful spot! The surroundings are breathtaking countryside with lots of wonderful places to visit! Perfect for the kids. We all loved the tennis court and the boys were delighted with the cinema room! A cosy spot with great local recommendations to enjoy!

The cottage is absolutely beautiful. It´s so cosy and warm and I always looked forward to getting back to the house after walks and dinner out. The tennis court and cinema room are amazing. Thank you so much. We will be back here again soon.

We´ve had a wonderful week in this beautiful cottage which has everything you could possibly need and more. It´s been such a treat to slow down with everything on ´AGA´ time. Our son loved the cinema room and we enjoyed the log burner. Many thanks to the owner for such a lovely hamper which greeted us.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in this picture perfect cottage! We all loved our four nights here. The cinema room is great, the twins loved it!
