About Mapperton 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. Mapperton is open for up to 9 months of the year with tickets through our website and offers a GARDENS SEASON PASS for garden and heritage lovers who love to return and enjoy our setting in all seasons. We have an onsite cafe, free parking, gorgeous views and a tranquil setting which visitors of all ages will enjoy.
