It was dubbed the ‘new Notting Hill’ following the outbreak of the pandemic, when city centres lost their appeal and people sought more spacious homes in the countryside.

Trendy Bruton in rural Somerset saw a 72 per cent increase in buyer searches at that time, according to Rightmove.

And the pretty setting continues to be a sought-after area with the average house price standing at £438,890. It is £100,000 more than the £327,712 average price of a home in Britain, according to Zoopla.

The property website adds that asking prices in the wider area of South Somerset have increased 11.8 per cent on the year, well above the national average of 8.4 per cent. 

Fashionable Bruton forms part of the Somerset ‘golden triangle’ that also includes Wincanton and Castle Cary. 

The affluent West Country town of Bruton is where TV presenter Sarah Beeny, former Chancellor George Osborne and filmmaker Sam Taylor-Johnson all own homes.
