Welcome to Mapperton Walks – a new way for you to explore the countryside around Mapperton.

Mapperton Estate is home to some of Dorset’s finest country walks – full of spectacular views, endowed with history and teeming with wildlife.  We have three walking trails of different lengths to choose from, from 1.5 to 2.5 hours long (Yellow 3 miles, Red 4 miles and Blue 5.5 miles).

Mapperton Walks Signposts

On your walk you will pass the lost village of Mythe, meander along an ancient valley and past an Iron Age hillfort.  On the Blue walk you will reach the hidden village of North Poorton.  You may also see our White Park cattle and wild Exmoor ponies on Mapperton Wildlands.

Please park at the main car park at Mapperton, enjoy a coffee or meal in the Coach House café and pick up a free Mapperton Walks map before starting your adventure.

Please stick to the paths and keep dogs on a lead as there are lots of young animals.  Thank you!

Please follow the Countryside Code:

  • Keep dogs on leads around livestock
