Maunsel House is one of the most romantic wedding venues in England, and perfect venue for any season. Owned by Sir Benjamin Slade and famous for being the ultimate ‘party house’ of Somerset the team can help you create a wedding or event truly magical and one to treasure and remember forever.
Come and fall in love with what can only be described as the hidden gem of Somerset.
Situated amongst 100 acres comprising of stunning gardens, orchards and lakes within 2000 acres of glorious natural beauty you will find Maunsel house nestled away behind a driveway of chestnut trees and surrounded by a quintessential English country garden where resident peacocks freely roam the grounds along with doves, geese, ducks and Shetland ponies too.
Maunsel House is licenced for civil ceremonies. Choose from our elegant regency ballroom which seats up to 100 guests or the pretty garden bandstand set within 100 year old trees looking out over to the parkland, or the undercover pergola within the Victorian walled garden full of old English roses, alternatively you may wish to marry in our very own candlelit Saxon chapel located only a short walk away from the house. Being one of the oldest and smallest chapels in England it is perfect for an intimate wedding seating up to 50 guests.
Wedding breakfasts/receptions can be held in the regency ballroom, a stunning formal room with elegant gold gilded mirrors, fireplaces and a fabulous large French window or if you prefer a garden style wedding you can choose to dine alfresco under the beautiful pergola within the walled garden. The undercover pergola seats 160 guests and is situated next to the apple orchard and surrounded with scented roses, jasmines and wisteria, and as evening falls is lit with twinkling fairy lights along with glow of our chimineas adding that extra touch of magic to an already atmospheric setting.
