Very friendly staff and excellent guide explained the property. A visit will not take more than one hour and little outside of the house to see. The village is well worth a walk around.

How did the clergy men get their supermarket deliveries I pondered as I tried to find somewhere to leave my little fiat, to no avail.Everywhere I tried to park there were yellow lines or chains across gaps or little stumpy bits of wood. Impossible. Finally there I was amazed at some of the tat they sell in these places, and... More

Visit this quaint property looked after by the National Trust. Set in a lovely typically English village, it truly is a great place to look over.

Being a NT member, I have visited this little place on a number of occasions. I have to admit to finding the small garden more interesting thabn the house and the village in which it is situated in even more interesting to walk around.

Beautifully kept clergy house adjacent to the large church in this little East Sussex village. The village itself is a delight so best find somewhere to park and explore not just this house but explore the whole area. The house has fame as being the first to be puchased by a fledging National Trust at the turn the 19th to... More

Lovely staff. Very helpful and cheery. The house itself is well worth a visit. Makes you wonder how they coped with the cold and damp in those days.

How nice to visit the first property purchased by the National Trust. The house and furnishings are presented in their original state without any modern additions. There is also a small but interesting garden which must look really colourful in the summer. The staff are very informative and their is a nice little shop on site. The village of Alfriston... More

This is a beautiful old house in a peaceful setting and surrounded by a lovely country garden. Lots of history, a little gift shop and knowledgeable guides to fill in the details.

This is the first property that the National Trust purchased. It is a timber-framed hall type dwelling where many of the constructional details are visible. We were welcomed by the staff/volunteers who made us feel valued and were prepared to explain the history and construction to us. The whole village is worth exploring and contains many other timber-framed properties.

Thank longtallmike
