  • 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 wh...  read more »
  • Located in a green area near the Church, served by a car park along the road it is a small parish house well preserved by the National trust. Everything has been nicely renovated and well presented by the volunteers of the NT, there is a main room and other small rooms that give an idea of its use very effectively from the original owner to the Church. Near the end of the access road, a very modern shop with typical products handled excellently and where you can enjoy an espresso like the Italians. Spend at least 1 hour per site is time well spent

  • It was a wonderful late Summer afternoon in Alfriston and the clergy house was waiting to be seen. It was a very old building and the first founding place of the National trust. Not an awful lot to be...  read more »
  • My husband and I visited Alfriston Clergy house on Sunday 1st May. You could really feel the 'history' of this place, especially upstairs in the little bedroom. I took some photos of the interior. One photo came out, out of focus and I could see an unidentifiable object on the bed and at the foot of the bed. When I zoomed in it looked like something from outer space, I can't describe it. I did feel very cold in that particular room. Beautiful gardens too. Alfriston village was not built with 21 Century traffic in mind. We had a lovely cream tea at The Singing Kettle in the village. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
  • Fascinating historical monument set in a beautiful little village. Access was quite hard with a pushchair but we managed it! No facilities onsite. Lot's of local pubs for loos/food etc.
  • First house to be saved by National Trust. Tiny Wealden hall set in lovely cottage garden on banks of river
  • A Beautiful garden wish many different flowers and views in the country.
  • The first ever National Trust acquisition, a 1350s Weald house, and the only one left. But what makes it incredible IMHO is that it is perhaps the first 'ordinary' mediaeval house I've ever visited. Standing in the cold and dark hall, looking up at the thatch, standing on a chalk and buttermilk floor, is as close to experiencing 'being there' as I have yet had, outside Pompeii.
