Breamore House
Certificate of Excellence

Beautiful Elizabethan house in deep Hampshire.Excellent value for money. House guide brilliant. Genuine Elizabethan bedding!!! Interesting museum and grounds. Thought £1.90 for half a cup of coffee was not so good though and very indifferent service in cafe.

Just spent a lovely afternoon in this lovely peaceful place. It is not over commercialised and feels like you are just walking round a friend's home with a very informative guide. What is really special is that because the same family still own and live in it the wonderful paintings, furniture and antiques are all part of the house, having been collected by the family over centuries and not brought in for the tourists as happens in so many NT houses. Despite living in this area all my long life I never realized what was on my doorstep and thanks to Groupon I have somehwere to take friends and visitors to. And you can always just go and sample the tearoom if you didn't want to do the House.

Really enjoyed our trip to Breamore House. Our guide was informative and interesting. He interacted with the group well and had a few amusing anecdotes.

The tea room served a lovely cream tea before we went on to the farming museum which was full of old machinery. I found the mannequins a little scary but thats because I have a slight phobia of them.

We've lived in the area for years and never knew you could visit Breamore House or there was a museum.Please advertise more in the Dorset area. Thank you Groupon for giving us the chance to experience such a beautiful house. An excellent guided tour lasted an hour, which was just right and gave us an insight into how the house has evolved over the centuries,whilst remaining a family home.

The real highlight for us though was the museum! So many memories and the curator's passion for local history was very evident. This museum really puts the New Forest Museum In Lyndhurst to shame.

The tea room is small,but reasonably priced.The estate church is also worth the short walk.

On a sunny day you could spend a minimum of 3 hours here but probably less on a wet or cold day.

There is a timelessness about one of the few privately owned family houses that the public can visit and the Hulses certainly do Breamore proud
