Maunsell was the venue for my Daughters Wedding reception and is an exceptional place which I would highly recommend. Booking the whole venue for the night is great so that a large number of guests do not have to worry about getting home and can relax for much longer. The rooms are all quirky and comfortable. Downstairs we got the... More

We recently attended a delightful wedding at Maunsel House, although we're not able to stay in any of the rooms in the house itself or adjacent accommodation. This is not a conventional hotel, more a function venue with accommodation for function guests. The house is an amazing place with hundreds if not thousands of items of antiques and bric a... More

I refer to the host as well as the house! Sir Benjamin has such a stylish house full of eclectic antiques and a wonderful garden which was still in bloom in October, with peacocks and guinea fowl strutting around.. It is such a brilliant place for a wedding. I had a most memorable weekend there -there must have been at... More

The rich style of the place hits you the moment you cross the threshold, crammed with wonderful paintings, furniture and artefacts of all sorts This place is both luxurious and eccentric , you could easily spend a whole day taking it all in! We started in... More

Just wanted to say what a fabulous weekend I've enjoyed at Maunsel House. The staff were exceptional and more importantly very discrete in their commitment to good service. The food and hospitality were outstanding and I very much look forward to my next visit.

Maunsel House is a treasure! It is packed with history, trivia, humour and life and a welcome change from the conformity of most country hotels. Sir Benjamin is a mixture of all such characteristics and welcomes everyone as long lost family. The accommodation is generous and comfortable and a weekend here, surrounded by the beautiful grounds and Somerset countryside, is... More

Attended a dinner party for 100 at this extraordinary 13th century Baronial home. The staff were so sweet and kind, and the enigmatic host Sir Benjamin Slade charming and welcoming. We stayed in the Orchard Suit which transported us back 200 years with its four poster bed, eclectic decor and ensuite with Victorian shower bath. Dinner was superb, with 100... More

A thoroughly enjoyable stay, lots of fun with masses to do as well as a comfortable bedroom. The staff are exceptional and were very professional in everything they did. Lunch under the pergola was a real pleasure - to be able to dine outside in October and not be cold is a great asset of Maunsel's and one that not... More

My wife and I found ourselves happily invited again to a weekend event at Maunsel. Our Host Sir Benjamin continues to improve all the facilities and the staff were exceptionally kind. We were met by a chauffeur driven car at Taunton station,and indeed the same driver and colleague drove us back at the end of the weekend.. The food and... More
