Info about Mapperton House & Gardens

Built in 1670, the Coach House at Mapperton has undergone a complete renovation. It is an events space which can accommodate up to 120 seated guests.

This spectacular building is part of one of Dorset’s most important manorial complexes, and has a Grade 1 listing with Historic England. Steeped in local history, it has had many functions over the centuries – as a coach house, stables, a sawmill and most recently one of the locations for the 2015 romantic hit ‘Far from the Madding Crowd’. Guests will enjoy spotting the remaining elements of the set.


The meticulous renovation has retained all of the historic features, including exposed stonework, lath & plaster surfaces and full height ceilings with original trusses and cross-beams. A new biomass heating system ensures plenty of warmth on colder days, while a 4K projector, professional sound system and controllable lighting brings the venue in the the 21st century.


Alongside the main space is a second large room which contains a fully-stocked & licensed bar, as well as an area for guests seeking a break from the festivities.


While the Coach House will impress with its historic features and enduring charm, it is an entirely flexible space which can be decorated in a myriad of styles, whether you are going for a vintage theme or perhaps a more classical look.Built in 1670, the Coach House at Mapperton has undergone a complete renovation.
