Our two Family Rooms (Rms 10 and 11)sleep a family of up to four (2 adults and 2 children) using our flexible ‘Guestbed’ system – they are not suitable for 4 adults. Both rooms were converted some years ago from the old stables and have direct access from the courtyard car park at the back, without going into the main house.
We have two interconnecting rooms (Rooms 2 and 5) in the main house. They can both be double or twin rooms, with room for a cot. We can also provide a travel cot.
Other equipment to make your stay more comfortable include a baby bath, a bottle warmer and a baby listening monitor.
All rooms have a Flatscreen TV with DVD player, and DAB radio. FREE Wireless Internet access adds an option for older children with their own electronic games equipment or tablets.
Our conservatory has an interesting ‘Nature Tray’, and in our courtyard car park we have ‘tree climbing ants’, and a ‘Hibernation Hotel’. In addition we have an outside seating area where you can watch the birds and other wildlife visiting our feeding station.
We have a selection of traditional toys and games including board games, Lego, puzzles, books, marbles, DVDs and soft toys including our very own Newton Bear. DAB radio with MP3 player input and FREE Wireless Internet Access add options for older children with their own electronic games equipment or tablets.

From the initial telephone booking, when Denise was helpful and friendly, throughout the stay, I could not fault this hotel. The room was delightful and spotlessly clean. We asked for fresh milk on the first day and it was then replaced in the fridge each day. The breakfasts were delicious and the staff helpful with suggestions of places to visit , chatty and friendly. The hotel was also very central 5 mins walk into the centre. Highly recommended. I have never posted a review before, Newton House impressed me so much that I felt I had to !
