Live Like Jane Austen in Her Former Home Turned Charming AirBnb

If you’re searching for the perfect location for a writing retreat (or just a fun getaway), then this Airbnb is perfect for you! Located in Bath, England, this Airbnb is the former home of, none other than, Jane Austen! The Austen family lived in this charming home from 1801 to 1805 and, according to the host, “Jane started work on her early and unfinished novella, The Watsons.” And though she wouldn’t begin writing the novels that made her famous until 1809 when her family moved to the Chawton House, this home is still an inspirational stay for visitors and literary fans alike.

With lots of artwork and rustic details, the home features antique furniture, which has been in the host’s family for generations. This home offers a unique slice of history for any literary or history buff. And for just £152 a night, you too can live (more or less) like Jane Austen herself!
