Heckfield Place, a Georgian Manor estate located in Heckfield, England, in the heart of Hampshire's Jane Austen country, is set to open on this month.

Dating from the early 1800s, Heckfield Place has been restored to its classic origins and features a biodynamic farm, two walled gardens and mature orchards.

The property offers two restaurants, Marle and Hearth, overseen by chef Skye Gyngell. Other amenities include a 67-seat cinema; a wine cellar, and the Little Bothy Spa, with three studios for personal training, yoga, Pilates and ballet, offered in partnership with Bodyism, a U.K.-based wellness and weight-loss brand.

Rates at the property, which also offers such cultural events as lectures, concerts and seminars, start at about $520 per night.
