A romantic country house – once owned by Jane Austen’s brother, Edward, and referred to as the ‘Great House’ in her letters – just an hour away from London.

As you sweep up the imposing drive, Chawton House Library welcomes you into an era of elegance, grace and wit.

Follow in Jane Austen’s footsteps by dining in the Oak Room, dancing in the Great Hall or strolling across the South Lawn to a classic marquee with your own Mr Darcy or Miss Bennet.

This fine house, with its panelled rooms, splendid staircase and beautiful grounds, is reserved for your exclusive use throughout the most wonderful day of your life.
