 Mapperton, near Beaminster. Postcode: DT8 3NR

Home to the Earl and Countess of Sandwich, Mapperton is a glorious sandstone manor house and romantic valley garden deep in a lost Dorset combe among tumbling hills and unspoiled countryside. Fifteen acres of gardens descend from the croquet lawn, through the formal topiary down to the arboretum, with wonderful specimens of shrubs and trees.

Dating back to the 1540s, the House was described as ‘notably characteristic’ by Lord David Cecil, and that ‘the different ages combine to create an unexpected and richer harmony’. Guided tours are provided on the hour, allowing visitors to explore the beautifully decorated rooms and discover The Sandwich Collection, an important archive of Britain’s naval history.
