Jane Austen´s House is a pleasant seventeenth century house in the pretty village of Chawton in Hampshire not far from her birthplace of Steventon. The museum houses an attractive collection of items connected with Jane and her family including the table that she used to write her novels. There is some of her jewellery, and examples of her needlework skill. In the drawing room is a fine Hepplewhite bureau-bookcase and chairs that belonged to Jane´s father and came from the rectory at Steventon. The pretty garden contains many varieties of plants and herbs common in the late 18th century and is still a peaceful spot.
