Coach visit to Maunsel House & Woodlands Castle Friends Only Event

Maunsel House Kings Room
Join us on a unique bespoke visit to two stately homes near Taunton with lunch and refreshments included.
Maunsel House is a magnificent 13th Century Manor set in 100 acres of stunning parkland. Personally guided by Sir Ben Slade, 7th Baronet, you will have access
to a wealth of history in this beautifulhouse. Lunch will then be provided before moving on to Woodlands Castle, also owned by Sir Ben, and just a few miles
away, for another tour with afternoon tea. Woodlands Castle was built in 1810 as a Regency style farmhouse which was remodelled 20 years later. Much smaller
than Maunsel it has a picturesque charm, and is set in beautiful grounds with fine views of Somerset.
Tickets: £55 including coach travel, two house tours, lunch and refreshments through the day.
