Feel Artistic Inspiration Staying at Jane Austen's House
This host has committed to Airbnb's 5-step enhanced cleaning process.
Sit at a wooden desk and summon the writer's muse at the Austen family's home from 1801 to 1805. Walls teem with artwork and shelves overflow with curious objects. Rustic stone floors lead to a courtyard that seems far removed from the modern world.
“In this house, Jane started work on her early and unfinished novella, “The Watsons”. Furnished with antique furniture, some of which has been in our family for generations, we offer a unique and authentic slice of history.”

Hi, I’m Maxwell. I’m working on restoring an ancient watermill and farm in Portugal with my wife, Anna, and we’re making our apartment in the City of Bath and our cottage in North Wales available while we work and travel! Our Bath home was once the Austen family's kitchen, scullery, and vaults - the very place where Jane would have made tea and breakfast for her family, while looking out of the window onto the courtyard. Anna has planted some roses and other plants, so the view these days is one to enjoy! Our cottage in Wales has been a labour of love between our travels, and has become a place of calm and peaceful respite that we’re glad to share with others in our absence. We love travelling, reading, the arts and culture, and our homes reflect our sensibilities. For our guests to peruse and to get to know us better in our absence, we have left numerous books, knick-knacks from our past travels and family histories, and the various technological conveniences we enjoy at home. After years of travelling, we’ve come to appreciate the value of a good bathing experience, and we have therefore ensured that you can enjoy an excellent one in our home. We welcome travellers from all over the world into our homes, and hope you can enjoy them as much as we do.
