From Our Editors

Breamore House opens its doors to visitors, unveiling an insight into a bygone age. The property's original 16th-century furnishings and artwork preserve a fragment of history in rooms still retaining their original Elizabethan style. Perched on the edge of the New Forest and with views across the Avon Valley, the estate is also home to a museum dedicated to the history of Breamore village. A number of reconstructed buildings serve as relics of the area's self-sufficient past, such as the smithy, brewery, dairy, saddler's, cobbler's and a farm cottage. Other artefacts include original examples of the steam-powered machinery that were once put to use on the farm. More contemporary amusements come in the form of a maze, adventure playground and gift shop, and groups can also stop by the tea rooms for a bite to eat.

Being disabled it was not the same as the experience for able bodied who would more than likely enjoy it more. I understand the difficulty in providing facilities for disabled in historic properties. I would explain this yto people if they asked.

Very nice cafe and outdoor seating area, and lovely food and staff.. Very informative tour of the house, and it was nice that in most rooms there were chairs for visitors to rest. Countryside museum is very large, comprehensive, and is housed in 4 separate buildings. It would have been nice to have some videos showing, to demonstrate some of the old skills e.g. coopering, thatching, farming etc. Many old tools on display and it would have been nice to see how they were used. No time left to visit the mizmaze, (1 hour walk through woods). Needs a whole day really to enjoy it all.

Be aware it is time slotted guide tours around the house. Good, but could have been told a lot more about the house and contents I feel. The museum is very good, and the little cafe and staff are excellent. Very jolly people, and their jackets are great. We even back after the tour and had afternoon cream tea. Be aware if you are disabled of the very long drive to walk up to the house. The Saxon church is worth a visit which is close by the end of the drive.
