Create

Your Perfect Weekend

The romantic charm of Maunsel House lies in the family home atmosphere; full of character, history and beauty. The glorious parkland, lakes and orchards are yours to enjoy, wander around and visit 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 – is one day really enough?

Maunsel House Cuisine

Cuisine

We work closely with Bon Appetit SW Ltd, a fabulous catering team who have access to the estate’s secret vegetable and herb garden, bringing fresh ingredients straight from the ground to your plate. With award winning West Country produce on our doorstep we are able to offer you a bespoke menu service as well as our exclusive mouth watering menus.

Maunsel House Grounds

Grounds & Pergola

Set within 100 acres of stunning parkland at the heart of a sprawling 2,000 estate you and your guests are welcome to embrace the relaxation of country life. Drive up the Sweet Chestnut lined drive and you find yourself surrounded with lakes, woodlands, walnut groves, orchards and wildlife in abundance you will not be short of photographic opportunities.

Our beautiful Pergola can seat up to 220 and is covered with scented climbing plants such as wisteria, jasmine and roses. At dusk the chimineas and fairy lights are lit adding a touch of magic to an already atmospheric setting.

Maunsel House Events

Activities

Be it business or pleasure we can organise a range of activities and games in and around the estate from a variety of team building exercises from clay pigeon shooting and problem solving to blind 4x4 driving.

Start your day off with a delicious breakfast and end it in the bar next to the roaring log fire, this being only one of the many options available to you at Maunsel House.

Accommodation

Staying at Maunsel House is a unique experience, with 13 ravishing bedrooms full of charm and character (many complete with four poster beds), it is a fantastic way to relax and end your perfect day.

Our newly renovated South Wing contains a further 4 bedrooms at ground level a few feet away from the house.

Maunsel House is riddled with secret passages, rooms and hidden staircases and recently we found a hidden passage running underground from the house to St Michael’s Chapel. As for ghosts, we leave that for you to decide…

We can recommend a number of self- catering cottages, Hotels and Bed and Breakfast in the locality for larger parties including five self-catering cottages on the estate.

A Word From Sir Benjamin Slade Bt

Many many happy memories

“Maunsel House 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 its rooms lends an enormous amount to any occasion.

More than anything we want our Brides and Grooms, 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.”
