The 17th Century White House B&B is set in the small Hamlet of Dulcote, Somerset. Located just outside the city of Wells, and a short walk from the market place and Cathedral, The White House is ideally placed for touring the sights of Somerset including the Mendip Hills & Somerset levels, Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole Caves, Kilver Court Gardens and Glastonbury Abbey & Tor. Providing luxury ensuite bed and breakfast and self-catering accommodation with a choice of three self-contained private guest suites, The White House provides every comfort for a guest stay.

Previously known as The White House, the first record of this village ale house in Dulcote was in 1696, when John West an "inn-holder" of Wells leased the ale house beside the west mill. In such a tiny community as Dulcote, it is likely that Mr. West served his beer from a room in this house, and that this early-style pub would have been the social hub of the working community. Both the lease of 1696 and the survey of Dulcote about 1785 lists the White Horse Inn and Garden as the property of the Vicars of Wells. A map dated 1829 plots the White Horse Inn, Court and Garden, in the very spot where the White House sits today, also identifies the land as "leasehold for lives" meaning land leased out to a tenant and his/her heirs over the course of several specified generations. Enjoying a leisurely breakfast is an essential ingredient for a stay and breakfast can be served either in the privacy of the suite or, if preferred, in the social environment of the family kitchen, between 8.00am and 9.30am. If the weather is good, there is also the option of an al-fresco breakfast on the patio to enjoy the views in the garden. A selection of cooked breakfast items can be tailored to meet guests requirements and these are complemented by a range of cereals, fruits and yoghurts. *Please mention any special dietary requirements when booking in the "additional information" section. With a little notice, the property is happy to prepare a packed lunch. Light suppers are available for late arrivals or nights in. Added extra's such as a bouquet of flowers, or a bottle of champagne or wine can also be organised prior arrival at an additional cost. There are many places to eat out in the locality and the owners are more than happy to make recommendations. Guests are welcome to wonder around the grounds and gardens during their stay. All rooms have their own private lounge and en-suite bathroom and typically the following can be found in each: Private annex in grounds of main house, King size bed and sofa bed. 32″flat screen wall mounted TV. Large wet room or bathroom with handmade botanical toiletries. Hairdryer. Wi-Fi, fridge containing non-alcoholic mini bar and fresh milk for complimentary hot drinks tray. Microwave.
