MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Two hours from London and half an hour from Glastonbury is one of England’s finest country-house hotels. The Newt in Somerset dates back to 1687, but has only been a hotel since 2019; despite its novelty, it delivers a remarkably rich experience, complete with vast gardens, woodlands, a working cider mill, a replica Roman villa, and a honeybee megalopolis known locally as Beezantium. Its rooms are divided between the original limestone house and the Farmyard outbuildings; highlights include a spa with an indoor-outdoor pool and chef Allan Altschul’s Farmyard Kitchen restaurant, which makes effective use of produce from the estate’s gardens.
