    We have visited Rue twice and both times Lamb House was closed. Luckily we found it open. It is well worth a visit for Benson fans and none alike. The garden is a gem. Lucky Rye.  more »

  • There are only 3 rooms to view, and the garden, which unfortunately seemed to be being used by the current renters or some other private party. Despite there being an event advertised for NT members we were not really made welcome and could not participate in anything. The house is beautiful but we were glad of membership so not having to pay entry.
  • The history and literature links are fascinating. Prepare carefully for your visit and check times of opening .
  • Very interesting place to visit, doesn't take too long, it's tenanted so only certain areas are open to view. There is no tea room but a pretty garden
  • A great example of British architecture. Great place to visit. Lots of history.
  • A smallish Georgian house which has ─║iterary roots, being the home of 3 authors and of 'Mistresses Mapp'. Only 3 or 4 rooms are open, but a magnificent walled garden with a beautiful mulberry tree is worth the entry fee. Be warned the house is at the top of Rye and a climb up through the town is called for.
