Hotel and Spa : The Newt in Somerset
When it comes to fresh new international hotel interiors, we’re always looking for inspiration to set the latest trends. The UK’s hot new Newt in Somerset, run by a dynamic South African duo, does not disappoint.
Nestled amid spectacular gardens, woodlands and gorgeous views of Somerset, the exterior of this country estate is enough to transport you to a place of sheer tranquility. The interior, however, is equally enchanting with every detail adding to the overall look of country charm and elegant sophistication.
This Georgian-styled manor house with limestone buildings in a burnt orange hue is simple and refreshing. Here, innovative design is paired with the freshest produce straight from the gardens. Beautiful country walks, superb service and a world-class spa are all available at The Newt – wrapping you in a sense of total wellbeing.
Now owned by South African Koos Bekker and his wife, Karen Roos, a former design magazine editor, (and owners of the popular Babylonstoren in South Africa), the couple have spent the last six years transforming the historic country estate into a spectacular rural retreat.
Parkland, woods, orchards and abundant gardens of various ages can be found here, with exquisite views across Somerset.
The hotel is a place to delight, with elegant rooms that have been restored and reimagined, while its unique setting inspires the innovative garden-to-table dining and garden-scented Spa.
Choose a book from the Library, sample a selection of teas in the Drawing Room or sip a cocktail while peering across the Croquet Lawn at the Somerset landscape. The in-house restaurant, known as The Botanical Rooms, offers a menu sourced from the estate and the very best specialities from the South West.
If you’re looking for a place to relax, the hotel boasts 23 spectacular rooms as well as a spa for that added sense of luxury. Float in the tranquillity of a heated indoor-outdoor pool, indulge your body with a splash in the hammam or nourish your skin in the rasul mud chamber.
Take a step into the country and enjoy a refreshing stay at The Newt in Somerset.
