The Newt in Somerset

Formerly the Hadspen Estate, this new visitor attraction adjacent to Shepton Montague, has recreated gardens and landscapes shaped by ideas, skills and traditions from ancient history to the present.

Besides the numerous individual gardens, displays, demonstrations and woodland walks, the estate includes a luxury hotel and spa set in the magnificent Georgian country house which was the seat of the Hobhouse family for two centuries.

More details are on the estate’s website and below are a few photographs to click through, taken by John Sykes shortly before the public opening.
