Welcome to Mapperton House & Gardens

Home to the Earl and Countess of Sandwich, Mapperton is a glorious sandstone manor house and romantic valley garden deep in a lost Dorset combe among tumbling hills and unspoiled countryside. Fifteen acres of gardens descend from the croquet lawn, through the formal topiary down to the wild garden.

The House, Gardens and Coach House café are closed apart from our 2020 Spring Flowers Sunday preview on 1st March (gardens and cafe only).  We reopen for the season on 8 March 2020 at which point our popular house tours will resume – and as a Springtime bonus all entry tickets are half price in March.  We look forward to seeing you then!
