Visit the Jane Austen’s House Museum in Chawton where Jane lived with her sister and mother on her brother’s property. Then walk to the Chawton House Library to trace Jane’s path to her brother’s inherited home. Take tea at Cassandra’s Cup and stay in the Chawton Garden House Airbnb.
Do yourself a favor, stay in an Airbnb, and make friends with your hosts. Our Swanage Airbnb host Angela, informed us the night before that she was concerned that we were not having as good a time as we should be having. Her other guests, she informed us, gushed about their days spent in Dorset…
I wanted to spend my time exploring Corfe Castle, strolling along the path atop the white chalk cliffs, and finding out if Swanage was still just as Bryson had described.
Our Airbnb in London was located on Roupell Street, which is occasionally used for various movie sets because it still looks similar to the way it looked 200 years ago.
