Mapperton is pleased to announce that, following an update to the Government guidance, our Gardens re-opened on Sunday 7 June. 

We are now open Sunday to Thursday from 11am to 5pm and we very much look forward to welcoming you back to enjoy the gardens throughout the summer.  

Mapperton’s Coach House Café is re-opening for weekends only starting Sunday 5th July offering a takeaway selection of hot and cold drinks, cakes, sandwiches and light lunches.

From 11th July we will also start opening the Garden and Cafe on Saturdays.

The House will unfortunately not be open at this stage, however you can always join our free live stream house tours on Tuesdays 4pm at mapperton.com/live

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.
