Just for You

Visit our online shop for beautiful gifts, tempting treats and fresh Somerset spoils, all baked, harvested, butchered and crafted just for you. Also don't miss out on special monthly member offers (find them on the Newt App) and 10% off your first shop when you sign up for our weekly newsletter.

Dine at The Botanical Rooms

Enjoy elegant and seasonal dining, inspired by and gathered from your surroundings. Chef Matt Heeley invites you to feast on estate vegetables, the choicest cuts from the salt room and dayboat fish from the Dorset coast. Savour the tasting menu, paired with Fine Cyder or something special from the house cellar.

A Feast for The Senses

Discover a feast for all the senses, from garden eateries to daily tours and seasonal workshops, all inspired by the land beneath our feet and the history and tradition of Somerset. We recommend planning ahead to make the most of every visit. Explore formal and productive gardens, get a buzz from the Beezantium or discover a subterranean world in The Story of Gardening. Finally, no day would be complete without stopping at the cellar or the Farm Shop to sample a drop or two of Cyder.

Great Garden Escape

Don't miss the train... Run away next summer and experience all things Somerset. From April 2024 we will be embarking once again on a First Class adventure, whisking you from London Paddington to the heart of the West Country. Explore picturesque gardens and ancient woodland, discover the art of cyder making and enjoy the finest fare plucked from the soil beneath your feet. Finally relax back into your seat and savour the perfect afternoon tea, as the miles fly by and we return you to the city.
