The Newt in Somerset

From the couple behind Babylonstoren – South Africa’s much-loved hotel & vineyard – comes The Newt in Somerset, a magnificent Palladian-fronted Grade II-listed stone mansion surrounded by acres of cultivated gardens, wild meadows, ancient woodland and apple orchards. Innovative design is paired with superb service, a world-class spa and a farm-to-table restaurant at this newly-opened hotel in the heart of the English countryside. With 13 suites in the 17th-century Georgian mansion - Hadspen House - and a further 10 rooms in the outbuildings of the Stable Yard, The Newt offers an idyllic English country escape with sophisticated style.

Just a 90-minute train journey from London, you will be welcomed to the estate and its picture-perfect setting. Accompanied by the Head Gardener and Cyder Master, gain exclusive insight into the cleverly crafted gardens, partake in traditional cyder tasting and enjoy the bounty of Somerset produce at the Garden Café restaurant.
