Welcome to Mapperton House & Gardens

Please note that, due to the production of a major feature film at Mapperton in July, visitors will not be able to view the House from 10th to 24th July inclusive.  The Gardens and Café will be open at the normal times, though some areas of the Gardens may be restricted on some days.  We are sorry for any inconvenience.

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 now open, Sunday to Thursday, 10am to 5pm. The House is open for guided tours only, starting at 12pm, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.  We look forward to seeing you!
