The AreaSteventon

Steventon is a rural village of about 250 people, 7 miles to the south-west of Basingstoke, between the villages of Overton, Oakley and North Waltham. It is surrounded by farms and woodland and is most famous for being the birthplace of Jane Austen in 1775. It is here that she wrote Pride & Prejudice, Northanger Abbey and Sense & Sensibility. Jane’s father was rector to the 13th Century church, St Nicholas, for 44 years and the property is believed to be the home of her wet nurse. Just 2 miles away is the thriving village of Overton, a large and attractive village set on the famous River Test, with a station and access to the Waterloo Line. Interestingly it still produces banknotes for the Bank of England and others and is the home to Bombay Sapphire. It has 4 pubs and a Norman period church, St Mary. Basingstoke lies 6 miles away; an old market town that was extended in the 1960’s and is the largest town in Hampshire. A little further away (14 miles) is the bustling cathedral city of Winchester, set on the edge of the beautiful South Downs National Park. Winchester has a number of good restaurants, shops and iconic landmarks whilst the South Downs has some incredible paths ideal for walking, riding or cycling.
