Jane Austen is one of the most popular and important novelists that England has ever produced. The house at Chawton is where she spent the last eight years of her life. It 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. A 17th century house, it tells the story of Jane Austen and her family.
Revised at this house: Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility & Northanger Abbey
Written entirely at this house: Mansfield Park, Emma, Persuasion
From a literary perspective the House provides an insight into the life of a writer of her time - a life that is to this day slightly enigmatic.
