Home to Jane Austen

Chawton, Hampshire , where Jane
last lived .

Bath, where she moved in 1801

Front view of Chawton.

Our Chawton House, how much we find
Already in it to our mind;
And how convinced that when complete
It will all other houses beat
That ever have been made or mended
With rooms concise or rooms distended.
- Jane Austen to Frank Austen, 1809
