A Jacobean manor house (c1660) with an 'Italian' garden laid out in the 1920s. There are some interesting features: an orangery, a croquet lawn, topiary, fish ponds and a shrub garden. Pevsner wrote that 'there can hardly be anywhere a more enchanting manorial group than Mapperton. The garden was used for TV productions of Emma and Tom Jones.

    A magical compact 'secret' garden in a stunning peaceful location. Wonderful trees and thoughtful planting, with plenty of shady places to sit and contemplate.
