The house, café and deer park will be closed Monday-Friday but open every weekend (10.30-3.30pm) from October 1 (no pre-booking required), where you can enjoy a hot drink (on our lovely outside terrace or in our fire lit café), and see historic Newton House decorated for the season and ready to welcome you to exhibitions and Winter activities.
