Oakley Hall Hotel is part of the following Editors' Picks:
"This Georgian manor with 315 acres of gardens and parkland stands on the site of a medieval hall that was purchased by Wither Bramston in 1795 and demolished to make way for the new fashionable style of brick-built country house. Today many of the public rooms retain a Georgian elegance to them . If you feel echoes of Jane Austen that is because she was a neighbour of the Bramstons and wrote to her sister about visiting them at the hall. Jane would have known Wither Bramston’s sister, Miss Augusta, who evidently told the young author that she thought Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice “downright nonsense”. The Conservative MP William Wither Bramston Beach was born at Oakley Hall during the Regency period and the early amateur photographer Jane Martha St. John lived on the estate in Oakley Cottage. William survived into the modern age, being killed in 1901 when he was run over by a London cab. Jane Martha was his aunt from a poorer branch of the family, a very Jane Austen character, but in later life (circa 1850) she took some of the first photographs of Rome."
"Oakley Hall was built in 1795 and its first owners were the Bramston family. Jane Austen was a friend and neighbour of the Bramstons and wrote about visiting them at the hall. On one occasion, Jane told her sister Cassandra, Miss Augusta Bramston "claimed that she thought Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice downright nonsense but expected to find Mansfield Park better”. It is thought that the domineering Mrs Elton (nee Augusta Hawkins) in Emma was named after Miss Bramston."
"Clay pigeon shooting at Oakley Hall, Hampshire: Let your dad lord it up this father’s day on 315 acres of rolling Hampshire countryside. The winding drive alone, snaking up to the elegant Georgian manor, screams: “pass me my shotgun and wax jacket!” And now your dad can don both and test out his hand/eye co-ordination whilst attempting to obliterate pigeons of the clay variety! After working up an appetite in the West Woods of the estate, he’ll then retreat to Oakley Hall for a spot of supper, and to weigh up his new country-gent status."
