  • 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 »

  • Although Lamb House is mildly interesting for Jamesians, the National Trust has not put enough work into the upkeep or curation of Lamb House. It's also worth remembering that the garden house in which James wrote his final three novels was destroyed in the war.
  • Only 3 small rooms to view. Luckily the garden is lovely and a great spot for afternoon tea
  • 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
