Property Description

The Swan Hotel Alton near Farnham and Basingstoke is located in the Hampshire town of Alton with easy access via the A31 making it an ideal base if visiting Farnham Aldershot Winchester Basingstoke. The Swan Hotel dates back to the 16th century and was a main stage on the old London Southampton coaching route and the Swan Hotel has been catering handsomely to passing traffic since the 16th century. Tradition has it that the poet Edmund Spenser Sir Francis Drake Queen Elizabeth I and the Earl of Essex all broke their journeys here. Another famous guest was Lord Nelson. Our guests include many people of sense and sensibility that is to say devotees of Jane Austen who make their pilgrimage to her cottage in the Chawton where Sense and Sensibility and Pride and Prejudice were both written during their stay with us. The cottage now is a popular tourist attraction and museum dedicated to Janes life and work. Today the Swan Hotel is popular with locals and travellers alike and is an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area.
