Welcome to Mapperton House & Gardens

Coronavirus Update – 23 March 2020 

We have made the difficult decision to close Mapperton House, Gardens, the Coach House café and the Shop for the time being, with immediate effect.  We hope you understand and look forward to welcoming you back soon.

It’s important to stay connected, and we’d love to keep in contact through our socials where we will be posting #mappertonmagic over the coming weeks.

The Mapperton team send you and your family our best wishes at this time, and please of course contact us if you have any questions or concerns.

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.
