“Lovely house, beautiful location, welcoming hosts”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

We were after somewhere friendly and comfortable to stay for a weekend away in the country to explore some of Hampshire, and this place couldn't have been more perfect.
The house is lovely, with the feel of a traditional English country family home. The beds, rooms & bathroom were all very comfortable. The location is beautiful, so close to the wonderful history of Jane Austen's house and the quaint village of Chawton but also not far from the train line into London which was convenient for getting there and getting home.
The hosts Kate and Mark were very welcoming and friendly, cooked us a delicious breakfast on both mornings before we disappeared off to explore for the day.
Very highly recommended.

As a Jane Austen enthusiast it was fantastic to stay at the house of the gardener of Chawton House. We have enjoyed the delicious vegetarian breakfast, the friendliness of the dogs Marcie and Ilsa, the lovely bed, the soft and clean towels, the quietness of the house and above all the thoughtfullness of the owners. Even my fiftieth birthday was not forgotten: at breakfast burning birthday candles! This lovely B&B is situated in the village of Chawton where jane Austen lived. We visited the Jane Austen House, had a delicious tea at the tearoom (Cassandra's Cup) and excellent meals at the cosy pub (the Greyfriar). We walked in lovely autumn weather to Upper Farringdon and visited the interesting Gilbert White museum.

The Garden House surrounded by beautiful trees and shrubs is a dream. Found in the fascinating village of Chawton, within walking distance of Jane Austin's house/Museum. Our room was beautifully decorated and the bed so comfortable. The owners were very friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us. Plus the breakfast was superb.
We shall definitely stay here again.

Arrived from Spain and stayed for two nights when we were visiting family and friends. We had a lovely, warm welcome from the owners and the bedrooms were extremely comfortable. The English breakfast was delicious and my son said it was one of the best he had ever had! We enjoyed ourselves so much that we are going to book again for our next trip. I would highly recommend staying at this wonderful B&B.

I stay in this beautiful country home whenever I am over from USA visiting my family who live close by. Kate and Marks gracious hospitality goes above and beyond, nothing is too much trouble. The bedroom with an en suite bathroom is cosy and spotlessly clean. The bed is wonderful and the sheets and towels are top quality. The fantastic English Breakfast they serve in the morning cannot be beaten.
It is perfectly located, close to everything in the historic village of Chawton but also close to other wonderful towns - Winchester, Farnham, Guidford Alton etc.
If you are looking to stay in a quintessential English country home look no further - this is it!
I highly recommend it.
