Eight centuries of history are buried within Mottisfont’s walls. An Augustinian priory was founded here in 1201, laying the foundations for the 18th-century structure that’s now visible. Today, hints of Mottisfont’s medieval past live alongside the stylish redevelopment that took place in the early 20th century. The priory In 1201 William Briwere, right-hand man to four Plantagenet kings, founded the Priory of the Holy Trinity here. Mottisfont held the forefinger of St John the Baptist as a sacred relic, and eager pilgrims came to be blessed by the Augustinian canons. The Cellarium at Mottisfont, Hampshire The Cellarium offers a glimpse of Mottisfont's priory past Hundreds of prosperous years were followed by devastation from the Black Death and other disasters. In 1536, the dissolution of the monasteries saw the Mottisfont estate gifted to Henry VIII’s Lord Chamberlain, Lord Sandys. A Tudor palace Lord Sandys set about transforming the priory into a grand house. During the 1500s and 1600s the Sandys divided their time between Mottisfont and their family seat, The Vyne. Queen Elizabeth I visited Mottisfont twice. But in 1684 the eighth and last Baron Sandys died childless, and Mottisfont was left to his nephew. Georgian refurbishments The Mill family transformed Mottisfont into the building and landscapes recognisable today. The estate was used for country pursuits. The red-brick stable block building through the branches of a plane tree at Mottisfont, Hampshire The stable block dates from 1836 The Great Plane tree was planted in this period: it’s now thought to be the largest and oldest of its kind in Britain. The eccentric end of a century In 1884 Mottisfont became home to Daniel Meinertzhagen, his wife Georgina (the sister of social reformer Beatrice Webb) and their ten children. They took the house on a lease from Mrs Marianne Vaudrey-Barker-Mill, under terms that forbade electric lighting or central heating. The Meinertzhagens entertained noted intellectuals including George Bernard Shaw and Charles Darwin. The children grew up with a whole estate as their playground. Following their departure Mrs Vaudrey-Barker-Mill spent the equivalent of £3 million restoring Mottisfont, exposing medieval masonry. But she still refused to contemplate electric lighting. The Russells The arrival of the Russells made Mottisfont the centre of a fashionable artistic and political circle. Imagine the sparkle of 1930s house parties, where ‘Bright Young Things’ rubbed shoulders with writers, painters and poets.

The New Forest is a lowland national park which means no large mountains just beautiful scenery and wide trails through ancient woodland and heath. It’s a welcoming landscape with lots of villages, good visitor facilities and excellent rail and road links. Given the accessible nature of this landscape it’s small wonder that the New Forest has been welcoming visitors since the early nineteenth century. As a National Park it is important to be as accessible as possible so everyone can enjoy this fabulous place. Experience the heart of the New Forest by exploring the old hunting forest of the Norman kings. There are two Forestry England sites, Blackwater and Bolderwood, which have accessible parking bays, accessible toilets and an easy access trail. For a more refined experience why not visit a stately home. Both Beaulieu and Exbury Gardens happily cater for visitors with additional needs.
