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.
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.

Neil’s regular ‘come dine with us’ nights enable relatives to join residents for a fine dining experience at their home.
