Worth House

Worth, Nr. Wookey


Located in the beautiful Somerset countryside, close to the medieval city of Wells, Worth House dates back 400 years. Ideally located for exploring Somerset and visiting the local attractions including Wookey Hole Caves, Glastonbury and Cheddar Gorge. Relax in the former farmhouse with parts dating to the 16th Century. Views of the Mendip hills and farmland from all rooms; the house offers a perfect setting to escape from the stress of modern living. The Pheasant pub is less than a 10 minute walk and there are many country pubs within a few miles.

Guests can relax in the comfortable living room with views of the garden.

Our Breakfast

Start your day with a hearty breakfast, using locally sourced products. Our bacon, sausages, eggs and bread are all delivered from farms in Somerset. You will be able to taste the freshness! And of course, can cater for special dietary requirements. Please advise when making your reservation.
Breakfast will vary according to the time of year. A full English will always be available with the addition of toasted bagels with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs in the warmer months and Sarah's cinnamon porridge in the winter. (We can leave the cinnamon out if you prefer!)
Upon your arrival we will request your preferences so we can get it just right for you.

If you are travelling in a group and would like a special dinner together, this can be organised. We can also provide a packed lunch if you are going out on a day trip. Please advise on booking with your requests.

About Us

Sarah and the girls moved back to the UK in August 2014 having spent many years living in the north west mountain town of Soller in Mallorca. She ran a holiday property management business for 13 years but decided it was time for a change and came across Worth House on the internet. Despite its rather run-down state, the potential was huge, and she took on the project of turning it around and beginning a new life with her daughters. The Wells area has plethora of culture and outdoor pursuits which made this a perfect location for her family.
Worth House re-opened in April 2015 and we absolutely love it here. Since December 2016 Sarah has been running Worth House with her partner, Nick. They both look forward to greeting you when you visit Worth House!
