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.

Breamore House is a little hidden gem. The tearooms are really lovely, with very helpful and friendly staff. The house itself was interesting to see and the guide excellent on the information that she gave us. The only criticism would be that the house lacks a bit of TLC and I felt it needed investing in a little more. Some of the updating and alterations that had been done had not been done very well and left it looking a little tatty to say the least. The grounds were beautiful and very, very peaceful, with the little church being a pure delight. very well worth a visit.

They don't make enough of the museum in the advertising, its a wonderful museum, well put together with lots of exhibits of times gone by, well worth seeing. The house itself is very interesting, especially as it is still lived in as a family home.

While the house is ok the guide was informative, knowledgeable and friendly making the house tour good. There is a small tea shop serving various refreshments in a lovely environment and I would recommend the cream teas with their fresh, warm scones. For me the pinnacle was the museum, I thought this alone was worth the money, a real trip down yesteryear, excellent. Safe, free parking too. Take a picnic and make a day of it with some lovely walks thrown in.

Visited during our heatwave. Luckily the house was reasonably cool. We had an hour's guided tour which was very interesting. You can see the house is loved and still lived in. Well-worth a visit and a cup of tea and cake in the cafe.

I would prefer to book a time and called to do so. We arrived ahead of time to get the first slot, but a coach party had booked the first slot and we had to wait. Also a hot day, we decided to go for an ice cream/lolly. They do not do sorbet or ice lollies for lactose intolerant people, as an alternative I was offered cake! A real shame as it spoiled what was a lovely house and museum.

The tour guide in the house was excellent and very informative,missed the upstairs as we had baby who fell asleep in pushchair,the reason we gave 3 stars was because we were disappointed with gardens not a flower in sight, also the tea rooms, the service was slow,found the museum interesting,if a little more was spent it would be so much better
