We Recommend


Jane Austen's House Museum

Houses, Gardens and Parks

Jane Austen was born a few miles from us in Overton and spent her first 25 years and her last 8 years in the Basingstoke area.  The Jane Austen House and Museum was her family home and is of international importance as the place where she did the majority of her mature writing, but at the same time retains the charm of a village home. 
We celebrate Jane Austen's life particularly as we approach the bicentenary of her 41 year life.  Why not read one of her books as you explore the countryside that inspired her so.
