Throughout the day and evening we’ll be serving coffee from Colombia and we will also have a selection of wines for you to try from Argentina and Chile. Why not make a day (or even weekend) of it and have a meal in a recommended local pub or visit some local places of interest? Chawton Cottage, where Jane Austen lived for the last eight years of her short life, is a popular tourist attraction that is open to the public year-round. The magnificent Elizabethan manor, Chawton House, the former home of Jane Austen's brother, is now a museum of women's literature and is also open to the public, together with its gardens. Both are just a short walk from our office at Mingledown Barn.

A few miles away lies the village of Selborne, made famous through the writings of its curate in the late 18th century, the Reverend Gilbert White, the founding father of natural history studies in Britain with his Natural History of Selborne. He created the famous 'zig-zag' walk up the Hanger, a striking escarpment supporting a woodland of towering Beech trees that can be seen from Mingledown Barn.

There is a range of bed & breakfast and hotel accommodation nearby, so, should you wish to stay longer to explore the area, we would be pleased to arrange accommodation for you.
