Chawton Cottage, Chawton, Alton GU34
Renovated in June 2019, the house is a real haven, ideally located in the heart of Chawton village and surrounding Hampshire. The cottage was built circa 1700 for the workers of the Squires big house, which is now the Jane Austen Library in the centre of Chawton. The writer’s home, now a museum, is directly opposite the house and it’s said that Austen family members stayed in the cottage when they ran out of room. They certainly smoked hams for Squire Knight’s guests in the inglenook fireplace.
As our guest, you will have exclusive use of the house which enjoys two double bedrooms with an upstairs bathroom, the lounge with open fire and a brand-new kitchen with modern appliances.
The garden (to the left as you come out of the house at the back) is a secret gem, offering plenty of space and seating area to relax and peak over the wall to the field of horses and nearby South Downs National Park.
You will have exclusive use of the full house and its garden.
