We attended a wedding last weekend and had the pleasure of staying in the Old Cornmill Cottage which was charming. Very well presented and great facilities. Its a short walk up to the main house where we attended a fabulous wedding!! Highly recommended!

We had our wedding at Maunsel House, including an overnight stay for several guests both the night before and on the day itself including using the surrounding cottages that are all within comfortable walking distance. The staff and service are as exceptional as the venue itself, we really couldn't have wished for anything better. There's plenty to look at around... More

This place oozes gentry and the lavish furnishings set the scene for a stylish night out. We had a great evening here, with everything we could wish for in the way of comfort and style. Staff most friendly and helpful. Inside this manor house, if you go through a mediaeval doorway is a pub, full of trinkets and interesting shaped... More

We went to a party held at Maunsel House, what a lovely place to be able to hold a special party/wedding. Very helpful, attentive staff and it had the feeling of giving a party in a private home, albeit rather a grand one.

My wife and I spent the evening at Maunsel House. It is in the most beautiful and idyllic setting. We were so welcome and everyone looked after us so well. I highly recommend a visit. My eyes were drawn to wonders in the house and never a moment without a glass in one's hand! The gardens are to die for.... More

I was lucky enough to stay at Maunsel House last month for a party and I had a fantastic time, staying as a guest of Sir Bejamin Slade's, he is the perfect host, charming and sophisticated with the manners of a great gentleman. The accommodation was first class, elegant and comfortable with anything one could possibly wish for. The Staff... More

I was fortunate enough to be at Maunsel for the weekend a month or so ago. Normally one has to go through a wardrobe to find a parallel universe but Sir Benjamin has created his own idly in Somerset, a short taxi ride away from Taunton railway station. Ever the perfect host with attentive staff, oceans to drink and excellent... More

I was lucky enough to be at this house for a luncheon party and it is the most spectacular setting. The gardens are perfectly designed for al fresco dining, the food was delicious, and the staff could not have been more attentive. Can't wait to go back!

Great Fun, Sir Ben has great taste and the staff do a fabulous job with great attention to detail. We had great food and drinks at the bar, Maunselhouse ale goes down well. Great place and well worth a party or wedding, Heli pad as well if you don't fancy a 2 hr drive from London!

Was a guest at a fab weekend wedding at Maunsel House. We were wonderfuly looked after in an eccentric but warm setting. Bedroom was stunning, food very good, loved the pub and all those incredible paintings. It would be impossible to have a bad party at Maunsel. It simply is a Party House where everyone just knows they will have... More
