Maunsel House

Maunsel House, North Newton, Nr Taunton, TA7 0BU, Taunton, Somerset
Up to 300 guests
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.

Dillington House

Dillington House Ilminster, TA19 9DT, Somerset, Somerset
Dillington House dates back to the sixteenth century, and is the former home of Prime Minister Lord North.

In the early nineteenth century, the House was remodelled in the so-called Jacobethan style and is now rated Grade 2* by English Heritage. The Mews building was constructed in 1875, while 2009 saw the opening of The Hyde - a spectacular example of contemporary architecture, overlooking the surrounding countryside.


Once a family home, since 1950 Dillington has served the South West region as a centre for adult education, for conferences and business meetings, and more recently as a beautiful venue for weddings and social events. Few people know that Dillington was a national centre for training for British Rail from the 1950s to the early 1970s. 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.


There is ample free parking across the site, with disabled parking available in front of the Mews building.


We have excellent facilities for people with disabilities, but it is always wise to let us know of any special requirements. That way, we can ensure that all of your needs are catered for in advance.


Dillington is a member of the Historic Houses Association and a member of the Somerset Chamber of Commerce.

The tables are long and rectangular rather than round, making it easier for guests to be able to talk to each other. The Longhouse bar is adjacent and close enough not to split up the wedding party, and importantly on the same level. There is a disabled lavatory and baby changing facilities also on the same level.


The Longhouse was built to high environmental standards and is an award winning eco wedding venue. We are very proud to be one of the eco-friendly wedding venues to recently receive GoldStar status -the highest category – in Green Tourism’s Business Scheme.

Built in 1670, the Coach House at Mapperton is undergoing a complete renovation, and will reopen in May 2018 as an events space which can accommodate up to 120 seated guests.

This spectacular building is part of one of Dorset’s most important manorial complexes, and has a Grade 1 listing with Historic England.

Guests will enjoy spotting the remaining elements of the set.


The meticulous renovation will retain all of the historic features, including exposed stonework, lath & plaster surfaces and full height ceilings with original trusses and cross-beams. A new biomass heating system will ensure plenty of warmth on colder days, while a 4K projector, professional sound system and controllable lighting will bring the venue in the the 21st century.


Alongside the main space is a second large room which contains a fully-stocked & licensed bar, as well as an area for guests seeking a break from the festivities.


While the Coach House will impress with its historic features and enduring charm, it is an entirely flexible space which can be decorated in a myriad of styles, whether you are going for a vintage theme or perhaps a more classical look.
