The Church Service
If you fancy a church service, Maunsel House is located only a short walk from St Michael’s Church, which is one of the smallest churches in England and a beautiful Somerset wedding venue. An enchanting candlelit Saxon Chapel, this charming church seats up to 50 guests. The famous author Geoffrey Chaucer based his character ‘The Wife of Bath’ on a local lady who was married there 5 times.
For larger church ceremonies, there are two other Church of England churches within the Parish: St Peter’s in North Newton, which seats 150 and The Minister Church, St. Mary the Virgin in North Petherton, which seats 250. With both located within a 5-minute drive from the Maunsel Estate, we are able to use either of these beautiful churches as your wedding venue and hold your reception here at the house afterwards.
