Breamore House is an Elizabethan Manor set above the picturesque village of Breamore, overlooking the Avon Valley on the edge of the New Forest.
The Manor House was completed in 1583 and remains the family home of the Hulses. There is a fine collection of works of art, including paintings of the 17th and 19th Century Dutch School, family portraits, a unique set of 14 Mexican ethnological paintings, fine examples of period furniture crafted from Oak, Walnut and mahogany, tapestries, a very rare James 1 carpet and many other interesting items of historical interest.
Breamore is largely unspoilt 17th century village with many old thatched cottages, and life in a typical village like Breamore can be relived in the Breamore Countryside Museum which provides a fasinating insight into the days when a village was self-sufficient. The museum boasts one of the finest collections of steam powered farm machinery, tractors, barn machinery and historical tools.
There is a Saxon Church which was built around 980 AD and it is one of the most important and interesting Anglo Saxon Monuments in Hampshire.
There is a well stocked Gift Shop, and a Tea Barn which serves light lunches, cream teas and homemade cakes.
