About this listing

Our house "Prowtings" sits in the centre of the charming village of Chawton, a stones throw from Jane Austen's house. It features regularly in her letters as a property she visited to socialise with friends. Visitors can stay in the beautifully refurbished two doubled bedroom split level annexe in the original old section of the house dated 1713 (the right hand section as you look at the front of the house).

The space

The annexe is very well equipped with everything you will need for a comfortable stay. You'll have your own front door access, living room/dining room, kitchen, separate cloakroom and toilet downstairs, bath and shower room and two large double rooms looking out over the front lawns upstairs.

The kitchen has all the modcons, - dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, kettle, oven, fridge, utensils, cutlery etc. The living room has two comfortable sofas, a coffee table, TV, DVD player and a selection of DVDs, writing desk along with local maps, things to do and places to see.

Guest access

You will have your own private front door and key so can come and go as you please. You will be able to park directly outside your front door (up the sweeping drive!) and are welcome to enjoy the garden and feed the sheep.

Interaction with guests

As much or as little as you wish. We would be happy to help if you need us. We will be in the main house and always contactable.

Other things to note

Please contact us if you are looking for more accommodation, as we may be able to arrange this in the main house.

Sorry no dogs - we love animals but with children, sheep and our own dog there is to much opportunity for trouble!

Do not miss this idyllic opportunity to blend a mix of perfect English rural tranquility with direct access to main roads to the south coast, London or the West Country. Your hosts Tom and Jenny are the perfect literation - adorable, accomplished, attentive and absolutely affable. The house is a quite large two bedroom - two storey dwelling set within sprawling green gardens surrounded by thatched cottages and close to Jane Austen's country house. It is within walking distance of Alton with its plentiful shops and a direct train connection to Waterloo, London. It really is perfection. Can't wait to go back. X

An incredible place to stay. Spacious, comfortable, and nicely decorated. Tom was a lovely host. He left a bottle of wine for us in the fridge and he drove us to the station when we had to go home. Chawton is a picturesque village and there is plenty to keep you occupied for a couple of days. Very highly recommended.

A large, light annexe in a beautiful location. The rooms are large and comfortable, and there is a full kitchen and bathroom (really nice shower). I stayed with a work colleague and this was a good space for that - large enough for privacy. Chawton is a great place to stay: we were working for most of it but managed two early morning walks and a walk into Alton itself, which is very easy to reach. Tom is a great host who easy to communicate with; he even picked us up from the station!

A beautiful and very peaceful retreat close to many places of interest. Very friendly hosts, very generous hospitality and plenty to see and do. Excellent guidebooks with plenty of walks from the doorstep, and beautiful towns and villages nearby to explore too. A wonderful long week-end.
