Run away to Somerset - Hotel re-opens 15 July 2020


The Newt in Somerset is a country estate with splendid gardens, woodland and farmland. The core is Georgian, with limestone buildings the colour of burnt orange, the seat of the Hobhouse family for more than two centuries. Innovative design is paired with the freshest produce, beautiful country walks, superb service and a garden-scented spa – wrapping you in a sense of wellbeing.

Our hotel will re-open to guests on 15 July 2020, with thoughtful precautions in place to keep guests and staff safe without overly compromising your experience. Our gardens are open to day visitors, including our Farm Shop, House & Garden Shop and new Gelateria. Visit us today and become a member, paying once to visit as many times as you like over the next 12 months.

As we help to feed our community, we are sowing, growing, baking and cheesemaking. Fresh foods are available from our Farm Shop or Mobile Newt online delivery service, along with cyder and estate items for your pantry.

"The goal is to offer to the consciousness beauty in all its forms, but especially in its original and simplest: Nature. Few places can boast such a power of attraction."
