Our Home

Somerset House Care & Nursing Home in the village of Wheldrake (just outside of York) is fully-equipped to provide the highest standards of residential, dementia and nursing care. The comfortable lounge and dining areas have a warm, homely feel where residents can enjoy relaxing or taking part in activities in the company of others.


The 42 bedrooms at Somerset House are bright, comfortable and homely with en-suite shower rooms, many of which have been recently renovated. Residents’ dignity and privacy is respected at all times, with carers understanding each individual’s preferences for entering their room while simultaneously ensuring they are supervised throughout the day and night.

Lounge & Dining

Our lounge and dining rooms at Somerset House Care Home in York are comfortable and tastefully furnished, making you feel instantly at home and relaxed. Our dining room is in our conservatory, which means it gets lots of natural light. It is clean and bright, with tables set ready to give residents a dignified and comfortable dining experience.


We encourage our residents to continue to enjoy their hobbies and pastimes and for many that is spending time in the garden. With beautiful surroundings, we continue to offer that opportunity here at Somerset House Nursing Home. Our residents take much pride from their flowering displays and vegetable produce and have enjoyed getting involved with the annual Country Court in Bloom competition.

Fine Dining Experience

At Somerset House we provide nutritious home-cooked meals for our residents created by our in-house chef, Neil. Our menus are updated on a weekly basis and in consultation with our residents. We strive to source local ingredients and our chefs are always happy to make dishes to order.

Neil’s challenge is to keep residents excited about coming to the dining table for their meals, every single day. Each dish is individually plated by his team and served to the table, with our hospitality team are on hand to look after residents both during and in between meal-times, ensuring everyone is happy and fed.
