Travel Tips: Bruton, Somerset

Bruton may look like you typical West Country town but there is more to it, especially culturally. For example, this week, world-class art gallery Hauser & Wirth is opening there which puts Bruton and the Somerset area even more into the spotlight when it comes to fine arts and culture.

In addition to culture and arts there are many more places to go and to see. The area’s fantastic  restaurants in particular deserve a closer look.

To get you started, you should really check out The Chapel.

This is an informal bistro-style restaurant and deli that’s also a renowned wine merchant and bakery.

At The Chapel, chances are there is always some cultural event  going on so it’s definitely worth a visit.

Cheap Beds or “Cheap” Beds?

Hell there is quite some difference between getting a “cheap” bed and a cheap bed. What I am talking about is that “cheap” doesn’t really always have to mean some low-quality bed imported from China.

When I was buying a bed three weeks ago I certainly had my share of “interesting” experiences, to say it mildly. The first tip I can give you here is that you shouldn’t always look only at the price when you buy a bed. Sometimes, a bed that is only 50 bucks more than the cheapest one in the store can be a lot better.

mattress-1The sales person let me know that the bed itself is really not that important if you’re looking for a healthy bed that can also last you a long time.

Most cheap beds you can find today might even come with mattresses but those mattresses are normally of very low quality. And if the mattress is poor then the best bed won’t help you and you will likely get back pain and other health problems from it.

If you buy a bed, always look at the mattress first or simply just buy the bed frame first and then get an extra mattress. If you say you cannot afford both at the same time, believe me it can be worth it to save some more money rather than going for the cheapest bed/mattress you can find. A quality spring mattress or a foam mattress may only cost 50 or 100 bucks more, but if you wait two months to buy it until you can afford it it will be much better, take my word for it!

If you’re still not sure what bed to get and what type of mattress would be right, do some research on the internet because this can be very helpful. Normally, you will have some preference such as you may want a soft mattress or a firmer one, so definitely try them out in the store before you buy! Beds Devon is a good place to get you started if you live in the area, I can definitely recommend them!
