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 house and garden are open all day for guests use.
The garden is an interesting walk, it contains a Victorian walled garden featuring lovely rose beds and romantic pathways. A gully with an old stone bridge and the most beautiful English Bluebells (when in season April/May), an ornamental pond and various avenues of maturing trees, on the lower lawns.
Traditional garden games are available by request, you cannot beat a game of croquet on the lawn on a warm summers day.
Open from May - September (weather permitting), located off the main lawn available from 7.00am until 7.00pm.
Now closed - will be reopening May 2018
