Venue special features: 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 Italinate formal garden with fountains, topiary, grottoes, ponds and stone statuary, laid out in the 1920s. Beyond this is the summer house overlooking two fish ponds, leading to the wild garden.

Venue History: Mapperton is one of the oldest Dorset manors. In 1919 it was bought by Mr Labouchere who built the formal Italianate garden in memory of her husband. Viscount Hinchingbrooke bought it after her death in 1955. The Estate has been in the family every since and is now the family home of the Earl and Countess of Sandwich.
