Built in 1670, the Coach House at Mapperton is beautifully renovated to create a dining and party space full of warmth and character, with a calm and tonal feel giving a modern edge.

This spectacular rustic barn 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’.

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 contemporary vibe, classic elegance or romantic chic.

The Coach House is one of Dorset’s most sought after wedding venues, and is only available for a limited number of days each year.  Why not arrange a visit, or request a brochure?
