Worth House is a family run bed and breakfast, owned by Sarah who lives in the house with her three daughters. The family relocated to Somerset towards the end of 2014 when Sarah came across Worth House for sale. The property was dated but the space and potential were simply too much to resist, not to mention the fabulous willow tree in the back garden! So she took on the challenge of turning it around in four months with the aim of opening for Easter 2015. Forever an ongoing project, Worth House is a home and business in equal measure, and a labour of love!
Sarah comes from a musical background and trained as a double bass player at the Royal Academy of Music. However, ultimately not interested in pursuing a career in music, she went to Paris to work and learn French following her degree, then returned to the UK to study at the Oxford Business School, subsequently working in the Corporate Marketing team for the pan-European Equity sales desk at Goldman Sachs in London.
In pursuit of something completely different and keen to get out of London, a spontaneous move to Mallorca in 2002 changed her life and she spent over 12 years in the town of Soller in the north west Tramuntana mountain region the island, running a holiday property and property management business.
In 2014, change beckoned again and a new project and move back to the UK for the sake of her daughter’s education, it was here that Sarah came across Worth House … and the rest is history!
Wells and the surrounding area has so much to offer visitors with plenty of historical interest, from the fabulous Medieval Cathedral and Bishop’s Palace to Glastonbury Tor, Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole, not to mention city life only 45 minutes away with Bath and Bristol.
Sarah looks forward to welcoming you to Worth House!
