Waiting For Mr Darcy

This fun design was inspired by Mr Darcy – ‘The Perfect Man’. A happy doodle-like androgynous figure that we can all identify with sits on a sofa waiting for their Mr Right. As well as being the perfect selfie opportunity with its quirky twist, we invite you to take in the fascinating past and spectacular backdrop of Oakley Hall – a place Jane Austen knew well.

Jane Austen was a frequent guest of the Bramston Family, here at Oakley Hall. Cherished memories of the hospitality and splendor at Oakley Hall are described in many of Jane’s letters. Oakley Hall look forward to welcoming visitors to Oakley Hall, just as Jane Austen did. Open for lunch, dinner and afternoon tea as well as for luxury accommodation.

Oakley Hall is signposted from the B3400 between Basingstoke and Overton, use RG23 7EL for sat nav. There is ample parking and the BookBench is right outside the main entrance – you will see it as soon as you arrive.
