    Wellington Manor And Stables sleeping up to 31 guests

    Wellington Manor is an impressive, elegant, Palladian style villa set in four acres of wonderful landscaped grounds centering on the mill stream alongside a once thriving, but now silent, mill.
    Built by Thomas Fox in 1797, the house and gardens have been carefully restored by the current owners. The main house sleeps up to 21 guests and the neighbouring stables sleep a further 10 to accommodate groups of up to a total of 31.
    ***** For all Bank Holiday weekends, the minimum stay will be 3 nights with an additional charge of just £250 for the entire weekend*****

    The options are virtually endless, but here are some of the more popular choices:
    A massage is just the thing to soothe away stress! The masseurs come to the house for a minimum of 3 hours, for treatment in either hour or half hour increments.
    Archery, laser clay and pistol shooting can be arranged in the grounds. This is ideal for guests short of time or those that don’t fancy driving further afield.
    If guests don’t mind a scenic drive down to Exmoor, there is nothing more exhilarating than horse riding on the hills. This can be combined with fly fishing and clay shooting as all three are quite near each other. There is also the prospect of meeting up afterwards for a pub lunch to tempt everyone out of the house.
    On the entertainment front, the casino night is very popular and is strictly for fun since the owners do not have a gaming licence. A murder mystery or a wide range of musicians, from a solo pianist to a ceilidh or from bluegrass to dinner jazz and anything in between can also be arranged.
    Hire your own sports complex: The property has a private arrangement with a local public school to hire their facilities over weekends. If guests fancy a cricket pitch for some 20:20 fun with tea in the pavilion, fabulous tennis and squash courts or fencing in the salon with coach and Olympic champion Gyorgy Felletar, the sports hall is a perfect choise. The sports hall can be hired by the hour for 5-a-side football, badminton or basketball.
    Cooking skills: Chefs can assist guests in a fun experience producing a meal. The Thai course is very popular.
    Golf: The owners can direct guests to excellent parkland, championship and links courses all within 5-10 miles of the property.
    Walking: A gentle stroll or a more energetic hike up a hillside are both options that usually have a pub along the way. There are maps and guided walks at the houses, and the owners can send the information to guests before they arrive.
    Quantock Hills, the home and inspiration to the writers Wordsworth and Coleridge and also home for the oldest breed of wild pony is glorious for walking, especially down Dead Woman’s Ditch.
    The Blackdown Hills is an area of outstanding natural beauty and the West Country's best kept secret. 
    Exmoor, including Lorna Doone country, Tarr Steps. All are beautiful areas to explore. The owners can recommend an excellent natural river pool to swim in the summer at OS grid ref. 3286.
    Surfing: The owners can direct guests to great spots or arrange excellent private tuition for a group including all equipment.
    Branscombe Beach on the south coast near Lyme Regis is a romantic, wonderful, shingle beach. Early summer evening barbecues on the beach are also highly recommended.
    Saunton Sands near Barnstaple, north Devon, is a two mile stretch of lovely, soft, sandy beach. Around the corner is the popular surfing beach Croyde Bay and Woolacombe Sand. Roads around this area can get busy in the peak summer months.

    Ground floor
    Entrance through the grand (40ft) Hall. Off the Hall is a fully equipped Kitchen together with a scullery and jam room. The drawing and dining rooms are where guests can unwind in comfort and style with a roaring log fire, amid many antiques and family portraits. The more energetic can retire to the Long Room for a game of table tennis or pool.
    First floor
    There are 10 bedrooms (and 6 shower/bathrooms) all reflecting fascinating, different aspects of the history of the house and family. They are comfortably furnished, with sumptuous beds. 3 bedrooms have en suite facilities, 3 attic rooms, 2 twins and 1 walk through room. The 11th bedroom is the ivy clad Old Laundry, a charming, very large bedroom suite with a gallery and its own bathroom. In total the house has 10/11 bedrooms & 7 bath/shower rooms.
    The Stables
    Sleeping up to 10 people in 5 bedrooms with two bathrooms. The Stables have been extended and modernised to provide contemporary accommodation alongside the main house. 2 bedrooms are on the ground floor with 1 bath/shower room and the 3 further bedrooms are upstairs.  The beautifully appointed kitchen is ideal for a morning brew, but then guests would join in the main house for all meals and entertainment.

    Anne-Marie – 25 Apr 2018
    "The location, the furnishings, the hosts, the details were all absolutely fabulous. They had thought of everything! 2 nights were not enough."
    "We had the most amazing time and everyone has taken away great memories from our time there. All of the guests were super impressed by the property, the dining room and party room were fantastic, and helped to make the evenings so much fun. One last point, which is hugely valuable, is the relaxed attitude of you all. It really makes a massive difference to guests as we all felt that we could relax and enjoy ourselves and have fun in the property. Tom 16th January 2016"
    The J Tribe
    "A really great place to spend the Festive Season!! We had a fabulous time in this wonderful house."
    H. Steel
    "We had a wonderful Christmas party here, such a fantastic house with facilities to match!"
    Dan C
    "Such a beautiful historic house to celebrate a 40th birthday weekend! We travelled from Devon, Wiltshire, London and even New Zealand to be here. We had a simply amazing time."
    Laura's Group
    "I would definitely recommend the house for a large group. The house catered for everything we needed, the two dishwashers and multiple fridges were a god-send too! Peter and Beverley were very helpful all the way through the booking process and were on hand for any questions I had in the run up to our weekend."
    The V Group
    "Thank you for the perfect venue for my 50th birthday. The kids and the grown ups loved it. We had great weather, pimms on the terrace and so much fun we all wanted to move in!"
    The Round Group
    "A perfect house and grounds for a fab friends get together. Thank you"
    Laura & Wayne (Mr & Mrs Townsend!)
    "I just wanted to drop you an email to say a HUGE thank you for all your superb organisation that made our stay at Wellington Manor so perfect!! All our guests very much enjoyed their stay and I will not be surprised if you get some return visits as a result. Our wedding day was great and arrangements run seamlessly. Please send our thanks also to the chef and staff, the dinner and drinks service was great and the food was amazing! The staff serving the drinks and food were very attentive and made everyone feel comfortable. Thanks again"
    Kay group
    "The house itself is beautiful, old and interesting - a proper taste of Georgian manor life. Plenty big enough, loads of space and lots of different rooms to explore and hang out in. We had a hog roast in the grounds one day which was laid on perfectly, with hay bales and torches and a garden bar under the tree. For a slice of luxury country living in the UK you really can't beat this place. Will definitely go back one day, can't recommend it enough."
    Mills group
    "Thank you and please pass my thanks on to Peter. It's a very special property. It even got one of our couples thinking of a wedding there! Quite an achievement!"
    Chamberlain group
    "It is an incredible place and the facilities just made the whole thing easy; something not generally associated with feeding and sleeping that many people"
    Morton Group
    "Wellington Manor is a fantastic house run by a fantastic company. Many thanks for arranging the shooting, fishing and 3 course dinner."
    Tylen Group
    "The property is maintained to a very high standard, the rooms are all very large and the garden is also fantastic. The games room is great to keep adults and kids entertained regardless of the weather and the dining room is the perfect one for a dinner with that many people around the table. The owner Peter was also very friendly and flexible. Excellent service! I highly recommend this place to anyone who is organizing a gathering, with or without children. I just can't wait until I have another excuse to go back to Wellington myself!"
    Wrintmore Group
    "Overwhelmed doesn’t even cover it! What a house! It offers everything you could want for this type of weekend."
    Claire Bendall
    "Thank you so much for all you have done for us in making our wedding day very special. It was very relaxed and everyone really enjoyed themselves. The food was very yummy too! Everyone has said what a gorgeous place Tone dale is. We are already talking about another visit, the family were so sad to be leaving there on Monday. Jo and Scott"
    Claire Bendall
    "Thanks to everyone at Wellington Manor for providing the perfect venue for our wedding last Saturday. The food was great (particularly the beef on Saturday evening and the Thai of Sunday). Tone Dale has an incredibly relaxed feel and was perfect for the low key "stealth" wedding that we wanted. A wonderful place to spend such fun times with our nearest and dearest. Thanks once again. Adam and Janet"
    "We were a lucky group of friends and family to be invited to celebrate Barney's 40th in such style. Wellington Manor with its understated luxury where everything had been thought of created the perfect scene to catch up with old friends and make new ones. Cocktails on the lawn, candle-lit dinners, breakfast in light-filled rooms and croquet (rules somewhat flexible). If this is what being 40 means, bring it on! Tara and Barney"
    "I just wanted to drop you an email to say a HUGE thank you for all your superb organisation that made our stay at Wellington Manor so perfect!!

    "Couldn't have asked for a better setting for our wedding reception. Wonderful house in beautiful grounds; great food; excellent party room and even sunny weather prevailed throughout most of the weekend! Thank you Claire and Peter for your time and efforts to make our wedding the fabulous experience that it proved to be. Tim & Anoushka"

    John Anon
    "We had an extraordinary and wonderful weekend. It was a reunion and some of us had not met for a generation! And we were in unanimous agreement that the House was perfection! It could not have been better. Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to P C."
    Simon Anon

    Sheila and Keith

The staff so friendly and helpful, the house so clean and the food was delicious! Truly a weekend to remember and a place to come back to!"
