Explore the picturesque Mottisfont House and Garden

Test Valley, Hampshire

What’s better than a summer’s stroll amid ancient trees and rolling lawns? Enjoy the splendour of one of Hampshire’s greatest country houses –Mottisfont.

Mottisfont House and Garden has an incomparable beauty, and is full of delights and surprises. Discover a wealth of creativity, conflict, love and loss as the house is brought to life through a changing array of exhibitions. 20th century society hostess Maud Russell hosted numerous events here, with guests including The Churchills, Ian Fleming and the Bloomsbury Group.

Through the centuries this has been a much loved home and estate for the generations who claimed Mottisfont as their personal piece of paradise. At the kitchen café relax in atmospheric surroundings where you’ll find delicious food made from locally sourced ingredients – the meat comes from the Mottisfont Estate and nearby farms. For a sweet treat, every tempting flavour of ice-cream can be found at the stable block parlour.

Mottisfont is an experience and has a story to tell to everyone – come and discover yours.
