About Us

Hillbrush has been manufacturing cleaning equipment in Mere, Wiltshire, since 1922. In April 2017 we launched our visitor centre, Visit Hillbrush, incorporating our gift shop of cleaning and personal grooming products, our amazing locally sourced restaurant, and our interactive brushmaking museum. We are the perfect venue for families looking for activities in Wiltshire, or travellers looking for a comfortable, friendly stop. We are just a two minute drive from the A303 Mere and Stourhead exit. We offer electric car charging, loyalty cards and gift vouchers. We are family friendly, with activity booklets available for children. Dogs are more than welcome on our beautiful south-facing terrace. We are open on Friday evenings, with a dedicated specials menu every week.
