Nestled in the rolling hills of West Dorset stands Mapperton, family home to the Earl & Countess of Sandwich. Undiscovered, exclusive and wildly romantic, Mapperton was voted the UK’s finest manor house by Country Life magazine. Exchange your vows in the elegant Garden Pavilion, then celebrate with champagne outside the majestic Orangery, with stunning views through the formal gardens into the tumbling countryside beyond. Then head over for your wedding breakfast to the impressive Coach House, recently converted into a magnificent entertaining space for up to 120 seated guests.
You will have exclusive use of the Garden Pavilion, Orangery, Coach House and gardens on your wedding day. The gardens descend from the grand lawn through to the formal topiary and down to the arboretum. Couples can explore the tree-lined paths which lead to secret archways and ponds, all the while enjoying the scent of roses and lavender hanging in the air.
With the launch of the Coach House in 2018, Mapperton will become one of Dorset’s most sought after wedding venues. Early booking is advised, as Mapperton is only available for a limited number of dates each year.
