We are delighted to offer a day excursion to Mapperton, set in the very heart of Dorset close to Beaminster. Surrounded by wonderful, lush countryside stands this striking sandstone Manor House surrounded by celebrated gardens. Home to the Earl and Countess of Sandwich, Mapperton was voted the UK’s finest manor house by Country Life magazine.
Entrance fee for the house and gardens is included and comes complete with a guided tour of the house by a knowledgeable guide. Dating back to the 16th century, this beautiful Tudor manor house holds an excellent collection of art and antiques. Proud winners of Historic Houses Garden of the Year 2020, the gardens at Mapperton are a joy to explore. One of the most important and distinctive gardens in the country, the gardens are famous for the romantic setting, varied planting and tranquility. The gardens descend from the very formal topiary gardens and Orangery to an arboretum with two rectangular ponds flanked with tall clipped yew trees.
Price includes entrance to the House & Garden. Tour of the house by guide.
