Opening Times

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, while picking up essentials from our Farm Shop. Just keep a sensible distance from others. We are operating strictly in compliance with Government legislation, limiting numbers and taking all necessary precautions to safeguard the welfare of our staff and visitors.


This is a working farm with lots of feathery friends and deer, so kindly leave your pets at home. Assistance dogs are allowed.

Please wear sturdy shoes (no high heels) as some paths have gaps, are uneven or can become slippery in wet or frosty weather.

Bring a hat in summer and wellies plus an umbrella in winter. A famous Swedish proverb holds: There is no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothing.

Children and anyone who cannot swim must be closely supervised at all times, as we have many ponds and lakes.

Parents with prams and guests using wheelchairs: kindly note that pathways in the garden and woods are uneven and can become slippery in wet or frosty weather.

The Newt in Somerset is a working farm. We accept no responsibility for any injury that the visitor could reasonably have avoided by following advice that appears on our website, maps and signs around the Estate. As regards any property, we are only responsible for any loss or damage to such if caused by us whilst you are visiting the Estate.
