“Two for the price of one”
Review of Breamore House

Breamore House
Reviewed June 18, 2013

You visit the house on the afternoons it's open in hourly guided tours. Ours was excellent, the guide showing us building, paintings and furniture from Tudor times. The great hall impressed as it must have done Doddington and Hulse visitors, and the bedrooms with original embroidered covers amazing.

There's a little Saxon church plus a huge rural collection in the walled garden: four sheds of farm machinery with the biggest collection of tractors we've ever seen, village crafts and shops. If only it were active with people demonstrating workings or explaining life in the past, this would be better than Milestones in Basingstoke. As it's between the attractive towns of Salisbury and Fordingbridge, well signed and with easy parking, we couldn't understand why more people weren't there.

We couldn't go round the house because of time. There are only 50 minute guided tours every hour and limited opening times,check before you turn up.We had just missed the tour and could not afford to spend 2 hours there so we went to the museum instead. It was brilliant, really impressive and extensive

We really enjoyed the Country Museum and spent over an hour reminiscing as we viewed the exhibits. The cafe, which is remote from the house, but next to the museum serves a good range of drinks and snacks, though the waitress was a little dozy, getting our order wrong and taking ages to actually get all that was needed to the table.

The picnic area is nice, near the parking but placed amongst trees on well-mown lawns.

We were able to park in the disabled parking area near the house, so I didn't have the long walk from the main car park.

The tour of the house was conducted by a superb guide, making everything so interesting. The house and its contents are just a little shabby and lived in - as it should be for it is still a family home. There are some real treasures there an some wonderful everyday things. I loved the refectory table with the carved monks on the legs and knife marks in the surface from the monks' knives long ago.

A beautiful Tudor house (which has mainly preserved its tudor features) with some lovely furniture. Our guide was friendly and informative- clearly loved the house. Reasonably priced with a small gift shop, tea room and accompanying agricultural museum (which we did not visit). Parking is an easy 5 minute walk from the house. The house retains much of its original furniture (really nice tables) and soft furnishings (which looked very sad & tatty). On a sunnier day a walk around the grounds would be pleasant. Look particularly at the first floor landing with its Latin American paintings depicting a variety of marriages and their offspring.
