More Than a Day
Our working estate in Somerset has acres of splendid gardens, woodland, farmland and cyder orchards to explore. Stay a night or two, or become a member and see the landscape change throughout the year.
Inspired by the land beneath our feet and the history and tradition of Somerset, we run a seasonal programme of workshops and events. The weekly Journal explores the activities, people and things that excite us. Join us in the garden, tune in digitally, follow Newt News or visit the shop to discover something new.
Explore our hives and colonies, discovering the fascinating life of bees and their honey.

We don’t sip cyder at breakfast as farm folk in Somerset used to, but we do enjoy a fruity tipple. From our Rosé to traditional single varietals, we champion the best modern cyder making techniques, with a nod to our West Country roots and a passion for the magic and alchemy that turns apples into golden nectar.
