Maunsel House, North Newton, Nr Taunton, TA7 0BU, Taunton, Somerset

There are many artefacts at Maunsel dating back to the Roman period. The first VIP visitor who stayed was Alfred the Great in 878 when he fought the Danes.

Brictworld the Saxon lived at Maunsel in 1066 and was replaced by Count Eustance of Boulogne in 1086 (mentioned in the Domesday Book) when the house was called ‘Maunsel’, being derived from the French meaning ‘Sleeve of Land’.


At the time of Henry II, William De Erleigh granted Maunsel to Phillip Arbalistarius As his daughter, Mabel. His son, Philip, married the daughter of Sir Hugh d’Auderville and assumed the surname of Maunsel. Philip de Maunsel became progenitor of the family with the surname ‘Maunsell’ or ‘Mansel’. The estate was passed onto the Bacon family of Norfolk and then to the Slade family.

In 1995 Dillington became the second venue in Somerset to be licensed for Civil Ceremonies and today weddings of all descriptions form an important part of our business.


Dillington's idyllic setting amid mature parkland makes it the perfect place to learn, relax, and get away from the pressures of everyday life. Our accommodation is first rate - confirmed by the award of a prestigious Five Star rating by VisitEngland's National Quality Assurance Standard Campus Scheme. Add to this delicious cuisine, friendly staff and a diverse programme of courses and events, and Dillington House stands out as a special place.
