Beryl Information


The building of the house was started in 1838 and completed in 1842, built for a local lawyer, Edmund Davis. Earl Mount Cashell subsequently used it as a Hunting Lodge. In 1916 the Jenkins made 'Beryl' their family home until we were so fortunate to purchase it in 1979. Since then, we have lovingly restored the house and gardens and are delighted to be able to share it. Nestling in the Mendip hills, one mile from the centre of the cathedral city of Wells, Beryl is set in 13 acres of parkland. Within the grounds are finely manicured lawns, carefully tended borders and a restored Victorian walled garden. Your arrival will be greeted with warmth and courtesy, the epitome of country house hospitality and a welcomed afternoon tea/coffee and cake awaits you. Elegant reception rooms are comfortably furnished with antiques, offering you the chance to relax by warm fires on a cold day, play board games or watch television - find a quiet corner to sit and read a favourite book, and maybe take a drink from the honesty bar. The garden is an interesting walk, it contains a Victorian walled garden. A gully with an old stone bridge and the most beautiful English Bluebells (when in season), an ornamental pond and various avenues of maturing trees, on the lower lawns. A children's play area can be found on the main lawn, and our outdoor pool is open May to September (weather permitting). Each of the uniquely decorated bedrooms come equipped with everything a guest needs to enjoy their stay. The beds are all extremely comfy and some rooms boast impressive four-poster beds. Most rooms on the first floor have a bath and shower facilities, whereas rooms on the second floor all have a shower. After a good night's sleep, breakfast is served in the traditional dining room, overlooking the main lawn. An impressive continental buffet and a freshly cooked breakfast straight off the aga await guests every morning.

  • Road from Wells (1.0 miles)
    From the center of Wells, follow signs for the B3139 (The Horringtons). You will drive out of the City slightly - keep an eye out for the Budgens BP Garage on your right. Hawkers Lane is just opposite so turn left and head all the way up the hill. Beryl is located right at the top, after going up a lane
