Mapperton Gardens is a unique valley garden in West Dorset, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The gardens surround the Jacobean manor house, stable blocks, dovecote and All Saints Church.
Below the Orangery and croquet lawn is an Italianate formal garden with fountains, topiary, grottoes, ponds and stone statuary, laid out in the 1920s. Beyond this is a summer house overlooking two fish ponds leading to the Wild Garden.
The Sawmill Cafe opens daily during the season for coffee, light lunches and afternoon teas. It is also licensed and sells a selection of wines, ciders and beers.
The gardens make an ideal setting for events, civil weddings, marquee receptions and photography. The Sawmill Cafe is also available for private functions.
There is wheelchair access to the top levels of the garden, plants for sale and a gift shop.
Advance tickets for the Garden with 10% discount are available on our website: mapperton.com.
