The Newt in Somerset



The Newt in Somerset is a country estate with magnificent woodland and gardens. The main house was built in the 17th century, then extensively remodelled in Georgian times. It nestles quietly amongst gardens, orchards, lakes and woodlands that reflect the love lavished upon them over the past three hundred years.


The Botanical Rooms restaurant is a window on the house’s Georgian heritage. The food is driven by provenance, using natural fire and smoke and taking influence from the land, locality and history. Every plate of food features something from the Estate and gardens, whether grown, foraged, distilled or baked in our kitchens and Bakery.


Unwind in the luxury spa, a space to relax and unwind, with indoor-outdoor pool, steam room and sauna.
