Nestling in the Mendip hills, one mile from the centre of the cathedral city of Wells, Beryl is a Victorian Country House set in 13 acres of parkland. Within the grounds are finely manicured lawns, carefully tended borders and a Victorian walled garden. Your arrival will be greeted with warmth and courtesy, the epitome of country house hospitality and complementary afternoon tea/coffee and cake awaits you. The Beryl team will do everything we can to accommodate your requirements, within the limits of what this grand old house will allow us!

The car park is a loose gravel surface with a smooth slope down into the courtyard. The courtyard can be used for dropping off/picking up, but is otherwise kept clear for emergency vehicles. The courtyard is a level surface that leads straight to a slope to the front door of the property.
Path to main entrance
The front door is accessed via a slope from the courtyard. After the front door, there is a partition with a double-door which is normally only half open (width), but can be fully opened (width) upon request.
