Bereleigh – The heart of the countryside

Bereleigh lies gracefully in beautiful, undulating Hampshire countryside within the South Downs National Park.

Views from the house take in a stunningly scenic landscape, unchanged for centuries, of a broad expanse of the estate’s tree clad hillsides and rich farmland. It is the perfect location for country sports, farming, entertaining and events.
The architecture is largely Georgian and the house has been home to the Tyrwhitt-Drake family for over half a century. But Bereleigh has evolved over many centuries from a small country farmhouse to become an enchanting, elegant family home. The house interiors contain a large collection of paintings and period furniture.

Standing at over 600ft above sea level in the middle of a majestic 2,500 acre estate, the house is surrounded by a patchwork of fields, woodland, streams and steep valleys. It is ideal for farming, shoots and leisure activities of all kinds.

Bereleigh House is a house designed for entertaining and provides the perfect setting in which to host shooting parties, charity events, corporate days or special family occasions. The beautiful gardens provide the perfect location for marquees while the house itself can accommodate up to 16 guests in 8 bedrooms.

Bereleigh House – A family home where a warm welcome is assured.
