Elizabethan Breamore House
Historical, national and family interest
Breamore Manor House contains a fine collection of paintings, tapestries, porcelain, period furniture crafted from oak, walnut and mahogany, and many other interesting items of historical, national and family interest.
The surrounding 17th century village of Breamore is largely unspoilt with many old thatched cottages, an extensive ‘common’ and a great deal of history. Life in the village can be relived in the Breamore Countryside Museum, which provides a fascinating insight into the days when the village was self-sufficient. Visitors can see full-size replicas of: a farm worker's cottage before the advent of electricity; a blacksmith’s shop; a dairy; a brewery; a wheelwright’s shop; a saddler’s shop and a cobbler’s shed. The village shop, school, cooperage, bakers, laundry, garage and clock-maker represent more recent developments. The museum boasts one of the finest collections of steam powered farm machinery, tractors, barn machinery and historical tools.
