About Breamore

Breamore is one of those beautiful New Forest villages which is populated almost entirely by houses of the Tudor period. With the River Avon flowing close-by, the village fashioned triangular in shape, with a delightful mix-match of big houses and picturesque cottages scattered around a village green, Breamore is a most pleasant place to wander around.

A prized possession here is the Saxon church standing a short walk away from the village. It is one of the best preserved Saxon churches in the country,
showing much early work including a magnificent arch over the entrance to the south transept, a Saxon Rood, and a remarkable painting of The Suicide of Judas. Behind the high alter you can see other wall paintings, possibly from the 13th-century. The church stands in a lovely tree studded churchyards where the visitor can see graves and tombs of many centuries.

Of great interest to all who visit this picturesque river-side village is the magnificent Breamore House, completed in 1583, and was originally Crown property until Queen Elizabeth I sold it to her favourite courtier Christopher Hatton. The house passed through several hands until it became the home of the Hulse family who bought the property in 1748. It remains by descent with a member of that family. Interestingly, the house was the setting for Children of the New Forest. It is a fascinating house, in a glorious parkland setting. The house is open to the public, it has beautiful furniture, and an interesting collection of works of art well worth seeing.

The village boasts excellent facilities, the Bat and Ball Inn serves good ale and delectable dishes. There are lovely forest walks, when if you are lucky you might meet one of the gentle forest ponies.

With Southampton water just a few miles away, and all the pleasures of the New Forest National Park, Breamore makes a pleasant retreat for a romantic weekend, or as a base for exploring this beautiful part of Hampshire.
