"The most magnificent venue in Somerset"
Maunsel House, a magnificent 13th Century Manor, is one of the most charismatic venues in England. Exclusively yours for any occasion, whether for one day or a whole weekend. From the moment you arrive at Maunsel you will be encouraged to treat it like home, with friendly staff whose sole aim is to make you and your guests experience truly wonderful.
From your first meeting to the day itself, your own dedicated planner will be with you every step of the way and every detail will be meticulously covered.
The romantic charm of a Maunsel House wedding or event lies in the family home atmosphere full of character, history and beauty. The glorious Somerset parkland, lakes and orchards are yours to enjoy, wander through the grounds visiting the duck ponds and the ponies or enjoy a quiet moment by the roaring wood fire in the library like Geoffrey Chaucer, who wrote the Canterbury Tales whilst living here.
May it be a beautiful summer wedding under the pergola with guests, a garden party on the lawn or an intimate celebration by candlelight with just close family and friends. Whatever it takes to make your dream come true, we will do!

At Maunsel we believe your wedding or celebration should be as unique as you are.
"Maunsel is a wonderfully welcoming home steeped in the most tremendous history and with, we feel, more than a touch of eccentricity (a reflection of it’s owner, perhaps!?)
"It is without a doubt a great party house which comes to life when it is full of people. The atmosphere, flow and configuration of it’s rooms lends an enormous amount to any occasion.
"More than anything we want our guests, their family and friends to feel relaxed, comfortable and most of all at home here.
"In short we hope you love and enjoy being at Maunsel as much as we do and leave it with many, many happy memories."
Sir Benjamin Slade Bt.
