Our hotel, restaurants, spa and The Story of Gardening are currently closed until further notice. Our online shop remains open.


In line with government policy, The Newt in Somerset has temporarily closed our Hotel, Garden Café and The Story of Gardening. We will try our utmost to help feed our local community by growing fresh, nutritious and essential foods of various sorts. It’s Spring, so we are sowing, planting and growing on the estate and in our gardens and greenhouses.

As fresh air, sunshine and open spaces are more important than ever for our immunity and wellbeing, our woods and gardens will continue to provide a safe place for people to take daily exercise. Just keep a sensible distance from others. Both our Garden Shop and Online Shop will remain open. We are operating strictly in compliance with Government legislation, taking all necessary precautions to safeguard the welfare of our staff and visitors.
