If you are in Alfriston and remotely interested in history then visit this. A little gem, with also the fact of being the National Trust's first acquisition around 1896.

We visited Alfriston on a coach trip and I think my wife and I were the only ones with National Trust membership which was a bonus. This property, although small, is a haven. Lovely building and gardens.

The problem may be me. It probably is. Here is a 650-year-old thatched house. Doubtless it was built far better than the dreadful double stories the big companies build by the thousand today. Much, much better. I once asked a senior manager how long one...More

A very interesting property and I imagine the gardens must be very beautiful in the Spring/Summer/Autumn. We went on an extremely cold day and it was almost colder inside the house than outside! It’s worth the coldness though! Plenty of information about the house and...More

Such a lovely little house, just hidden away, was the first building the National Trust bought. It always reminds me of Alice in Wonderland and makes me think that her head will pop out the roof and arms and legs out of the doors and...More
