WELCOME TO BERELEIGH

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.

From April to June, Bereleigh Sporting offers exclusive access to the Bereleigh Estate for a superb day’s simulated clay pigeon shooting which is run as if it were a game day. The days offer a combination of drives including high pheasant and springing partridge which together create five outstanding and challenging drives for 8 pegs which allows sport for up to 16 guns.

Bereleigh House provides wonderful hospitality. Hearty bacon rolls and coffee are provided on arrival, elevenses are served, while there is a full shooting lunch and afternoon tea. Overnight stays can also be arranged with a superb three course dinner accompanied by fine wines. Simulated game days are ideal for all levels of shooting, from the experienced to the novice, and provide a wonderful format for corporate entertainment or just a fun day for a group of friends. Professional instructors are on hand as you require.

The Sporting Agency provides privileged access to Britain’s most unique estates, desirable river beats and exclusive shoots.

Tom grew up on the beautiful Bereleigh Estate situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty in Hampshire on the South Downs. Growing up at Bereleigh allowed Tom to understand the intricacies and complexities of managing and utilising the needs of an estate. This continued to evolve as a land agent with BCM in Hampshire. From starting with BCM in 2005 until starting The Sporting Agency in 2015 he established himself as the “go to” man for all aspects of shooting advice. Tom has been featured as one of The Field’s ’50 top shots’ in The Field Magazine and shooting is in his very DNA – his father Bill is on the Board of the Countryside Alliance and is the Chairman of the Code of Good Shooting Practice. Tom coordinates and attends to every detail which he considers key to organising the best possible shoot with the available assets.

HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS

First and foremost Bereleigh is a gracious, welcoming family home. Its doors are flung wide to welcome guests for shoots, as well as film and production companies for location filming and photography.

The house and estate is a wonderful, atmospheric setting. But Bereleigh is alive and a thriving family home. Food is locally sourced and ties to the local community are strong particularly in the scenic and historic Doomsday Book hamlet of East Meon, nestled close to the estate. Philippa Tyrwhitt-Drake coordinates the activities of the busy house and moves seamlessly from welcoming exclusive shooting parties to assisting with groups wishing to take advantage of the house’s assets. Over the years, many production companies have featured the house for television, film and photography purposes. Bereleigh is a house that is enchanting, atmospheric and engaging. It is a house to fall in love with.
