Lying in the parish of North Petherton, the village of North Newton is ideally placed with good access from the M5 at junction 24 or 25 via the A38 and is situated midway between Somerset’s County Town of Taunton and Bridgwater.
The village’s Anglican Church of St Peters is beside Newton House, which makes Dragonfly Barn a very convenient location when attending a wedding at the church. Sustrans National Cycle Route 3 passes through the village making it a popular choice for cyclists and situated close to the Bridgwater/Taunton Canal with its towpath, the village is ideal for cycling and walking alike.
The Harvest Moon Bar & Restaurant has recently been refurbished and the current owners bring with them a reputation for fantastic food and a friendly welcome. visit The Harvest Moon for more information
The Quantock Hills are a short distance from the village, providing excellent open hill country for walking, horse-riding and mountain biking with miles of footpaths and bridleways. By contrast the Somerset levels and moors which are just to the east of the village, play host to a diverse range of wading birds and wildfowl, and are home to an RSPB reserve at Fivehead.
