Advance Tickets & Garden Membership

All visitors must have an Advance Ticket or valid Garden Membership for entry; there's no need to specify a day, simply book online and visit us before January. After your visit, sign up to a Garden Membership for no extra cost - paying once to visit as many times as you like over the next 12 months.



In order to avoid queues and protect the welfare of staff and visitors, advance tickets are now required for entry to the gardens. We also recommend booking in advance for eateries and activities; plan your visit now so that you're ready to explore.



We are only accepting card or contactless payments at the moment and do not have cash machines on site.

We ask that you please keep a sensible 2m distance from others during your visit.

Our new Gelateria is serving cold drinks, fruity sorbets and creamy buffalo milk gelato.

This is a working farm with lots of feathery friends and deer, so kindly leave your pets at home. Assistance dogs are allowed.

Please wear sturdy shoes (no high heels) as some paths have gaps, are uneven or can become slippery in wet or frosty weather.

Bring a hat in summer and wellies plus an umbrella in winter. A famous Swedish proverb holds: There is no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothing.

Children and anyone who cannot swim must be closely supervised at all times, as we have many ponds and lakes.

Parents with prams and guests using wheelchairs: kindly note that pathways in the garden and woods are uneven and can become slippery in wet or frosty weather.

The Newt in Somerset is a working farm. We accept no responsibility for any injury that the visitor could reasonably have avoided by following advice that appears on our website, maps and signs around the Estate. As regards any property, we are only responsible for any loss or damage to such if caused by us whilst you are visiting the Estate.
