THE HOUSE. Tone Dale is an impressive, elegant Georgian,listed Palladian style Villa. It is set in four acres of wonderful landscaped grounds, centring on the mill stream, alongside a once thriving woollen mill (now only partially working, no noise).

We have combined all the best ingredients of yesteryear and 21st c. convenience, to create a retreat from the hurly burly of modern life, for guests to relax and enjoy.

In addition to the main house which sleeps 21 you can add the Stables, a beautifully refurbished annex which can sleep a further 10. This is never let separately but can be hired to provide further delightful accommodation for your group.

A full range of excellent catering & activities can be arranged.

The house sleeps up to 31 guests and the house and grounds provide ample space for everyone to have fun. The beds are sumptious and the dining room provides a great setting for those big get together meals. The games room has table tennis, roulette and pool tables. The new party room (2011) now adds another dimension, leading off from the dining room it provides a dancefloor with fully integrated sound and lighting so you can bop till you drop! It also has a 60' plasma screen for showing movies and sporting events.

Croquet, badminton and boules are provided along with a whole host of other games too. Other activities can be arranged in the grounds or nearby.

Many past couples are now returning to Tone Dale for anniversaries and baby naming celebrations too!

Corporates: The house lends itself to the informal meeting, away day or team build. Many past clients such as Nationwide, Microsoft, AA, Waitrose, Morgan Stanley, BUPA, Virgin have returned time and again to enjoy the benefits that Tone Dale can offer.

There are 15 bedrooms, although we can sleep up to 25 delegates if you are prepared to twin up.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a blissful time. Everyone pitched in – much fun, love and good food. The key was the people (of course) and this amazing house. It did the work!! Thank you to our hosts, Peter and the team.

Amazing amazing amazing - beyond perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We organized a family reunion at Tone Dale with 24 of our friends and a few children between us. Everyone had an absolutely amazing time! The property is maintained to a very high standard, the rooms are all very large and the garden is also fantastic for adults and kids alike. 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.

Tone Dale is so big that we didn't really have the impression of being 26 people in the house at any point in time (apart from dinner).

The owner Peter was also very friendly and flexible with all specific arrangements we required (cots, names on the doors etc). Excellent service!

I highly recommend this place to anyone who is organizing a gathering with a similar number of people, with or without children.

I just can't wait until I have another excuse to go back to Tone Dale myself!

Tone Dale Christmas 2011

  • 5 of 5
Organising an event like Christmas involving family and close friends was a daunting challenge. Not least finding the perfect venue. Tone Dale seemed to fit the bill, although I was slightly concerned given the wonderful reviews and photos my high expectations would not be met, and worse not met by the other revellers we had convinced to share this special time of the year.

I did not have to worry!

From the moment we entered the house, our doubts evaporated. Tone Dale house delivered on every level; welcoming, spacious, entertaining, historically fascinating and so very homely.

The bedrooms were extremely comfortable; with two bedrooms accessible on the ground floor in the neighbouring Stables (one of our requisites). Although, I must stress, wheelchair access to the Stables needs to be via the patio doors rather than the main door; a short walk (50m) from the main house.

With four ovens and industrial size pots and pans, catering for large parties is not a problem. We chose to do all our own cooking which proved to be no problem given all the equipment. Even cooking Christmas Day for 27 people was extremely successful. We also made a wise decision to schedule an online shop to arrive on our first day; all the main supermarkets reside in Wellington.

In addition to the floor plans and photos, Tone Dale boasts an entertainment/dance/TV room accessed through the Red Dining Room. This proved invaluable to younger members of the group. Whilst the tv in the Library was used as our 'quiet' room.

Given the large grounds, well stocked Games Room and good weather, we hardly used the television - a testament to Tone Dale.

The Big House Company were fantastic hosts and attended to ALL our requests, questions and needs without intruding on our time at the house.

The children had an especially wonderful time; including some of the 'permanent residents' (enough said). It has provided everyone with some very special memories which will stay with us for a very long time.

Owner's Response: Hi Darren
We are delighted to hear that your Christmas worked out so well at Tone Dale House and that you had such a good time. It really is a great house to get all your nearest and dearest together. It has something for everyone.
We would love to have you back for another visit. Perhaps you might like to try one of our other houses, Widcombe Grange or Berry House next time!
Best wishes,

Best wedding ever

  • 5 of 5
We set out with the idea of having an informal wedding, more along the lines of a party with the wedding ceremony in the middle of it and that's exactly what we achieved. The house lent itself superbly to our occasion, all of the guests loved it, we loved it and had the best wedding ever!

Tone Dale House is located on the outskirts of Wellington and is part of a once thriving woolen mill (now defunct). Within minutes you are in the Somerset countryside with access to great walks and country pubs.

Golf: Somerset, Devon and Dorset boast a wonderful, wide selection of courses for the novice or the more experienced golfer. We can help to arrange a 'West Country golf tour' starting at the excellent Oake Manor, near Taunton, and then select from a number of inland or seaside locations while based at Tone Dale or another one of the three Big Houses in Somerset.
