The Newt

We say
Whether you choose a cosy loft room with exposed beams or a garden view suite with a four-poster and bathroom so large it has its own fireplace, you’ll want to stay between the high-thread count sheets for days. Set in a restored 17th century manor house and stable yard, the vibe is posh friend’s second home, if that friend had a spa, library, immense kitchen garden, croquet lawn and cider mill.

Recommended place to stay: The Newt in Somerset

The Newt in Somerset says

The Newt is as far removed from a stuffy country house hotel as you can get. Our aim is for you to feel right at home – albeit chilled, pampered and indulged.

  • Chic country house
  • Gorgeous rooms
  • Gardens and woodland

All our public spaces – the drawing room, library, bar, Croquet Room and restaurant – are airy, informal, comfy and welcoming. There’s a croquet lawn, expansive gardens and woodland, all on the estate.

When it comes to the bedrooms, there are 13 to choose from in Hadspen House, all with a classical style, sexy bathroom and lovely garden views. The Stable Yard rooms, all created within the estates’s original stables, clock house, granary and hayloft, are a bit quirkier – and just as luxurious.

Delicious home-grown food is served in The Botanical Rooms and there’s a spa with spoiling therapies, a heated indoor/outdoor pool, hammam, Himalayan salt room and top notch gym. You can visit the farm, of course, and take a tour of the garden and our cyder barns – and don’t forget to stock up on goodies from the estate farm shop before you head home.

We will reopen in September 2020 and look forward to welcoming you then. Find out more about The Newt in Somerset and book your stay from September 2020 with a full refund if we are unable to open then.
