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.
