    Thank You

    Can’t stop smiling and can’t say enough about how wonderful Maunsel House is!!! The house and gardens are stunning, the food was delicious but most of all - the team there are absolutely amazing. So flexible, friendly, professional and relaxed, and really made our day so special. Wedding in the garden was beyond perfect but we really liked that the indoor ceremony room was bright and beautiful if it did rain. We feel so lucky to have found this place, will be having anniversaries there in years to come.

    Somerset Wedding

    Had our wedding at Maunsel House this weekend and the venue and staff could not have been better. Nothing was too much trouble and they went the extra mile to ensure the day was perfect. The setting is beautiful and the house is one of the most fascinating and interesting places around. I would 100% recommend this venue to any couple considering it as a venue for their big day.

    Amazing venue and team

    Our guests are still raving about the "wedding of the year" we had at Maunsel House in April. We were encouraged from the start to treat Maunsel like our home, and we definitely felt welcome there. The venue is a show stopper, and every member of the Maunsel team went out of their way to make us and our guests feel special. Liddy made sure that the day went smoothly - even saving the best man speech from a near technical disaster! We love Maunsel and can't wait to go back! Thank you so much for an amazing weekend!

    "Dear all the team at Maunsel,
    Thank you so much for organising such a wonderful wedding for Lydia and Julian.
    It was all we hoped for - calm, friendly, relaxed, efficient, welcoming. We've had many comments from guests about what a great place it was to have a winter event.
    Hope you were able to relax over Christmas and wishing you all the best for 2013."

    Tough Crowd!!

    We really appreciated how easy you made it for us and our family to relax. I think we were perhaps a tough crowd, but you managed to meet everybody''s needs and make it feel like no effort at all. How you managed to be everywhere at once we will never know, but it gave us great confidence and total peace of mind. Every request we made of you was met with diligence and a smile, really i dont know how you managed it, so thank you once again.

    Thank you Thank you!!

    We loved the venue and the special atmosphere created by yourselves and the staff. From Friday night until Sunday the event was seamless and nothing seemed too much trouble even the little tiny bits that needed last minute attention were done without fuss and upset. Please pass on our thanks to your A1 butcher for his hog roast it was DELICIOUS and ALL the staff worked well as a team.
    I have to say that for us the fact that we were able to blend our Harris ideas with those of yours enabled us to end up with the personalized event that we experienced.

    With our sincere thanks
