Amazing Austen

What beautiful weather we have been enjoying recently! It was especially kind on our most recent venture out of the village; a trip to Jane Austen’s house. 

We took a coach to Chawton in Hampshire, to the home where the famous author spent the last eight years of her life. Despite her connections with Bath, the house in Chawton is known internationally as the place where she did the majority of her mature writing, notably Emma and Persuasion.
 
We toured the house and gardens in awe of its 17th century charm, marvelling too at the picturesque setting. A great day out, everyone agreed.
