Breamore House (pictured above) is an Elizabethan manor house noted for its fine collection of paintings and furniture. It was completed in 1583 by the Dodington family, but underwent minor changes in the 18th century and considerable restoration after a major fire in 1856.
The house plays home to a classic staple of ghost lore - a cursed object. The object in question is a portrait of Lady Christian Dodington. She is said to have cursed it on her death bed, although there is no documentary evidence to support it. However, nobody seems willing to move the picture from the house just to see if the curse transpires!
The house is also reputedly haunted by murdered wife of Sir William Dodington, who appears in the Blue Room.
