The Grounds At Maunsel

Maunsel House is surrounded by 100 acres of beautiful park land at the center of a 2000 acre estate.

We have luscious green lawns where guests can play games such as croquet or just relax with a glass of wine.

The Lake

For those who like to be by water you can take a stroll around the two lakes and enjoy a private picnic.

Not forgetting the walled garden decorated with country flowers, this is a perfect spot for an outdoor wedding reception or BBQ, and also surrounds our beautiful roofed Pergola.

It wouldn't be Maunsel House without all our lovely animals.



Meet Nelly, mum of Bluebell, one our miniature Shetland ponies who grazes in the park along with our herd of Castle Milk Moorit sheep.
