Last year I visited the Newt and paid £48 entrance fee. Yes I understand that this lasts me for entrance for a year but only useful if you are close and also 5 other sites that are again not close to where I live. I could of made more visits. Yesterday I visited again and noted that the entrance price is now £68. There is no reduction for families or senior citizens. The. Garden has developed a lot since last year and there is the woodland walks. The views are lovely. The Roman Villa has just opened but you have to book that visit and it was fully booked yesterday. There are plenty areas to site and admire the views but food does cost a wee bit more than other sites that I have visited. I would love to visit more but I feel I get more value from my National Trust card as a senior citizen

Completely unique day out, with something new on every corner. A day out you will never forget. Very well presented and choice of eating places. Very expensive to non members unless you attend with a member. Unless you live in Somerset and make two or more visits a year this is cost prohibited. Helpful and friendly staff. Suitable for all ages and abilities.

This is actually one of the most fantastic places I've ever been. We have membership to the gardens and they are heavenly. The garden restaurant is resplendent with a view to die for and the fine cyder is the most unbelievable experience. Can't give it enough outside even tho we have never stayed in the hotel

Highly recommended booking to view The Story of Gardening. Very interactive for children and adults a like. With this and all the other features to see at The Newt you will find plenty to do here, we will definitely be coming again as there is so much we didn't do.

A fantastic stay! Brilliant food, friendly staff and beautiful gardens. We stayed in the Farmyard and it was brilliant- especially being able to get the buggies back and forth. The experiences that we did were great, especially loved the bee safari. My one piece of advice would be for there to be a quick tour of the Hadspen House grounds and spa we got this when we went to the Farmyard but didn’t know for example where the lawn was for our garden tour or the facilities in the spa.
