Breamore


Breamore Village - Hampshire and Breamore House

Breamore village is situated just on the outside of the national park boundary to the north and is an absolutely delightful picturesque and quaint village. The village which has a marsh and the River Avon close by (both sites of special scientific interest) also is home to many listed building all of which require special permissions before modifications can be made.

Unlike a traditional village centralised around a central green Brae more has a much more scattered make up of housing ranging from cottages built around the 14th century up to grander properties built in the later 19th century. The Architectural style of the properties range from the old timber framed type of build to Elizabethan brick.

Breamore however is probably most well known for Breamore house as opposed to the picturesque village, the house is an imposing Elizabethan manor house that overlooks the village and surrounding area.

Breamore house occupies a site that has been inhabited since before the 10th century by all accounts, and the church here has Anglo Saxon architecture at it heart.

The house has passed through various ownerships over the centuries and has gone through various states of upkeep as well over the centuries depending who was in residence at the time.

Breamore house was ravaged by fire in 1856 but it was subsequently rebuilt keeping the original Elizabethan architecture intact wherever possible. Another feature that has stood the test of time is Breamore's Mizmaze. This is an unconventional form of maze and Breamore boasts one of only eight remaining turf mazes to survive in England today.

The house was bought by the Hulse family originally in 1748 and has been passed down ever since to the current incumbent owner.

Breamore is also within easy reach of other major attractions in the area including Rockbourne Roman Villa, Salisbury Cathedral and the South Wiltshire Museum so is ideal if you are having a day of culture in the area.
