Mapperton's terraced valley gardens surround a Jacobean manor house. A walled croquet lawn leads down to the Orangery and Italianate formal garden with fountains, topiary and grottos. The lower garden contains a mature arboretum with specimen shrubs, rare trees and spring gardens. There are magnificent views and walks.
