Just outside of Alton, and a ½ hour drive away from Milestone Museum, is the humble home of the iconic author Jane Austen. Austen lived the last seven years of her life in the quaint farm house where she spent her time revising and writing her most famous works including ‘Mansfield Park’, ‘Emma’ and ‘Persuasion’. Visitors are welcomed in to this charming home to attend workshops based on writing techniques used by Jane Austen herself, and to exhibitions that pay tribute to the incredible literature she created. Tickets are reasonably priced at £7.50 per adult and £2.50 for children aged 6-16 years.
A grand, Victorian Grade II listed house, Tylney Hall Hotel sits peacefully in 66 acres of rich, rolling Hampshire countryside with the tree-lined approach setting the scene for this idyllic destination. This sense of calm is echoed throughout the grounds with the lake, manicured lawns and magnificently restored water gardens, originally laid out by the renowned gardener Gertrude Jekyll.
The level of comfort is typified by 112 bedrooms and suites, all individually furnished and meticulously maintained. Palatial lounges offer the perfect location to enjoy a quiet drink or afternoon tea overlooking the grounds. Award winning cuisine is served in the Oak Room Restaurant, where a modern cooking style with classic hallmarks combines with the best local produce.
Rest and relaxation is never far away, with the luxurious health suite offering the latest treatments in tranquil surroundings, gymnasium, saunas plus indoor and outdoor pools. There is also an 18-hole golf course that neighbours the hotel.
With a range of private function rooms, including the self-contained Hampshire Suite, Tylney Hall is a popular venue for weddings, meetings and events in Hampshire.
Tylney Hall’s storybook setting is at odds with its convenient location, close to the M25, 40 minutes from Heathrow Airport and with good links into London.
