Breamore House is a grade 2* listed Elizabethan mansion located within the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The house is set in the stunning and largely unchanged 17th century Breamore village, 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 Hulse’s. 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.

A short walk from the house, at the bottom of the drive, you'll find the Breamore Countryside Museum, cafe and farm shop. Set within the old walled garden, the museum boasts one of the finest collections of steam powered farm machinery, tractors, barn machinery and historical tools. The museum provides a rare and fascinating insight into the days when a village was self-sufficient.
