Maunsel House is a magnificent 13th Century Manor set in 100 acres of beautiful grounds. Every little girl dreams of her wedding day to a knight in shining armour in a grand ballroom with crystal chandeliers, church bells ringing, white doves fluttering in the courtyards and pretty flower ensconced bandstands. If little boys were to dream of their wedding day we reckon they would want an assortment of guns and swishing swords… here at Maunsel House, in North Newton, Somerset, we can offer all this and more!
The sweeping staircase, guarded by silver knights in shining armour leads up to the 13 beautiful and unique bedrooms and into… The Kings Room – our magnificent bridal suite, holding a custom made 8ftx6ft Four Poster Bed with all the décor in rich red and gold, a fine royal bedroom fit for a princess. The 16th Century Tuscan solid walnut table is the centrepiece of our incredibly elegant sage green Dining Room, with it’s fabulous high ceilings and beautiful French windows and tall mirrors the Dining Room provides the perfect setting for drinks receptions, evening celebrations, and setting the stage for your cake-cutting.
The Pergola – set in traditional walled gardens, lends itself to fabulous al fresco dining. It is covered with scented climbing plants such as jasmine, roses and wisteria and as the evening chill sets in, the chimineas are lit and the fairy lights add sparkle to any event.
Every wedding is unique and our bridal couples are spoilt for choice should they wish to have a church ceremony or a civil ceremony.
