Uk The Newt Somerset Exterior Hero


Based in Somerset in the UK’s bucolic southwest, the Newt is positioned in one of the country’s rural hotspots. Close to the trendy village of Bruton and the Hauser & Wirth gallery, this hip enclave marries high culture with glorious Somerset country characterized by cider apple orchards, medieval stone buildings, and oak and beech woodland.

Farm shops and artisan cheesemakers work nearby, but most of all this is an escape from the urban into southern England’s green heart.


Hadspen House at The Newt is a unique Georgian jewel, a place to delight in nature and serenity. In every aspect of the hotel, it’s clear that the gardens are the heart of the hotel.

The tranquil spa uses scents derived from the English garden. The Botanical Rooms restaurant creates stunning dishes from homegrown vegetables and meat sourced from the estate. Head to the Croquet Room or Bar and indulge in The Newt’s very own cyder. Start your day with a breakfast of fruit and vegetables fresh from the garden, dairy from local cows, and honey from the bees buzzing outside.

The gardens do not just inspire the cuisine of the hotel, they are also integral to a stay at The Newt. Immerse yourself in the beautifully designed grounds with a guided tour or set off on your own to explore the wider estate and woodlands at your leisure. Discover how cyder is produced at the property with a guided tour and tasting at The Cyder Press. The Newt is the perfect place to truly immerse yourself in the glory of the English countryside.
