Jane Austen and Saxon heritage await near your Alton holiday cottage
A holiday cottage in Alton, Hampshire's friendliest town, is the ideal base for discovering the place that gave us Jane Austen. The market town, which was recorded in the Doomsday Book as the most valuable, is still home to a hoard of cultural attractions and entertainment.
Battles and buckles
The famous Alton Buckle is displayed at the Curtis Museum. Marvel at its filigree wire, garnets and silver bars, and its age – it’s estimated to date back to the 6th century. Jane Austen's House Museum is a different cultural treasure, though no less amazing. It was at this quaint house in Chawton that young Jane discovered writing.
Gape at the scars that are still visible on the 11th-century St. Lawrence Church, the scene of the Battle of Alton during Britain's civil war. Historic walking tours through the ancient town tell of its link to the expression 'Sweet Fanny Adams' and its Saxon beginnings.
Relive Hampshire's history
Close by, in Basingstoke, you can visit Milestones Museum of Living History, a top attraction for families. The town's cobbled streets are an atmospheric setting for costumed characters who bring Britain's past to life. Children will love the penny arcade and old-time village post office.
Expeditions in nature
The picturesque Watercress Line Steam Railway winds through leafy countryside to the village of Ropley and onwards to Alresford. Take a trip to Selborne, which is home to Gilbert White's House and The Oates Collection. Artefacts from the naturalist’s expeditions allow you to travel around the world and through history.
Selborne Hanger offers sublime views over England's famously beautiful South Downs. The trail runs through meadows and ancient beech forest. Selborne Common, known for its wild anemones and orchids, is known to draw monarch butterflies in summer.
