Free parking is available on the main road when the dead end car park (operated by Chawton Parish Council) is closed. Please drive through the village to get as close as you can to the bottom of our driveway.

There is another car park in the village (opposite Jane Austen’s House). Both car parks are free of charge. 

There are some accessible parking spaces behind Chawton House, please contact us on 01420541010 or to let us know if you require these at the time of your booking.   


Tickets will be checked at the tea shed located on the driveway.

Please have your name and any relevant membership cards or passes ready. 


Dogs are welcome in all outside areas but must be kept on a short lead. There is a water bowl in the courtyard if they get thirsty, and dog treats are available from the Old Kitchen Tearoom. We ask all dog owners to clean up after them and use the dog bins provided. 


The outside toilets are accessible and will be open for visitors to use at their own risk.

The toilets will be cleaned at the start of each day and hand-washing facilities and sanitiser will be replenished. To allow for safe social distancing, we will only allow one visitor at a time into the ladies toilets – despite their being 3 cubicles. Please queue outside by the markers.


The Old Kitchen Tearoom and Courtyard are open seven days a week, 10am-4.30pm. Last orders are at 4pm.

We will be operating a table service with visitors able to order food and drinks on a first come first serve basis. Please note, indoor diners are restricted to groups of 6. We offer seating for larger groups in our Courtyard.

You can also purchase food and drink for takeaway at the Parkland Pantry, outside the Chawton House gates. See below for details.

Alternatively, why not order cakes from the tearoom to be delivered by post from our house to yours?
