View the days out leaflet for Mapperton Gardens

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.

Mapperton House – the west front 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 Café, run by Eggardon Kitchen, in the grounds of Mapperton Gardens is open daily for coffee, light lunches and afternoon teas. It is also licensed and sells a selection of wines, ciders and beers. There is plenty of space to sit in the old saw mill and admire the shamiana, an Indian wedding tent, designed specially for Mapperton. The more adventurous can sit outside and watch the resident cockerels, chickens, ducks and doves.
