The magnificent Elizabethan Manor House overlooks the Avon Valley on the edge of the New Forest, just north of Fordingbridge.

The house was completed in 1583 and looks today much as it would have done to its original owners.

Visitors can enjoy seeing a wide variety of paintings as well as tapestries, porcelain, 17th-century needlework and a rare James I carpet. There are also fine examples of period furniture in the house.

Set in its own beautiful parkland amid surrounding farms and fields, the grandeur and magnificence of the house has changed little over the past 400 years. 

The Elizabethan Manor House and Countryside Museum are open for visitors from April until the end of October. 

Breamore House is also available as a reception venue for weddings and as a unique filming location.

A word from the owner

I am delighted to welcome you to Breamore House which is my family’s home, and in fact has been home to nine generations of my family. I hope you enjoy your visit.
Michael Hulse


Breamore House is a simply stunning venue for your wedding celebration and we offer a variety of receptions tailored to meet your needs.

You can choose to hire the Great Hall, which can comfortably seat up to 120 guests for your wedding breakfast. Or you may prefer to have a marquee erected within the grounds for a more informal celebration that still takes advantage of this fabulous setting.

Either way you and your guests can expect a warm welcome and enjoy the special atmosphere that a Breamore wedding can provide.

The house and grounds are a wonderful location for those all important wedding photographs and couples marrying at the church can enjoy the luxury of a short walk from church to reception venue or arrive in motorised style via the sweeping driveway to the house.
