When Hauser & Wirth (www.hauserwirth.com), the contemporary-art gallery in Zurich, London and New York, turns its attention to hotels, you can expect a left-of-centre approach. On July 15, the small Somerset town of Bruton, a two-hour drive west of London, gets a sprinkling of glitter when the influential husband-and-wife gallerists Iwan and Manuela Wirth open a six-room guesthouse – available for exclusive use – in an 18th-century farmhouse adjacent to their newest gallery outpost. Durslade Farmhouse (www.dursladefarmhouse.co.uk; £1,500 for a minimum three-night stay) will have rooms that mix vintage furniture from salvage yards with works by Hauser & Wirth artists – including a mural by Guillermo Kuitca and a video installation by Pipilotti Rist projecting the Somerset landscape onto walls through a chandelier of found objects.
