Ancient trees, babbling brooks and rolling lawns frame Mottisfont's 18th-century house with a medieval priory at its heart.
Maud Russell made Mottisfont her home in the 1930s, bringing artists here to relax and create works inspired by Mottisfont’s past, including an extraordinary drawing-room painted by Rex Whistler. Mottisfont continue those artistic traditions today, with a permanent 20th-century art collection and major exhibitions in our top-floor gallery.
Outside, carpets of spring bulbs, a walled rose garden, rich autumn leaves and a colourful winter garden create a feast for the senses all year round. Mottisfont's world-famous collection of old-fashioned roses flowers once a year in June. Winding paths meander through stately trees, with the sound of water never far away.
There’s space to run, jump and play, and always something for families to do, with activity trails in school holidays and a special family exhibition every summer.
Mottisfont also look after 1600 acres of woodland and tenanted farmland in the local area, including Stockbridge Down and Marsh, and Curbridge Nature Reserve. The wider estate is a wonderful place to explore, take a relaxing walk and take in the sights of some of Hampshire's most glorious countryside.
