Warm welcome in shop, and house tour delightful and very interest garden small as property but beautifully appointed and new additions each year. Thursday and Friday closing disappointing, and price of entry would be better lower, so more could enjoy.

This is a small property - the smallest NT property that I have visited with very limited accessibility. Parking is some 500 yards away on the other side of Alfriston, there is no on-site WC or café - although the Chestnuts of Alfriston Tea Rooms, 200 yards away is excellent.

First property bought by The National Trust. Authentic and worth a visit. Very interesting story about the building, and the gardens, though small, are beautifully tended.

It is a very basic National Trust property but the simplicity is just wonderful. From the location on The Tye, to the garden and of course the interior of the house it is very charming. I just loved it!

Very pretty, but very small house. Members of NT but wouldn't be worth paying single entry. Only took 5 minutes to look around

Visited on a wet day. The house is very small but full of history and the staff could not have been more informative.

This is an interesting property behind the church and is the first ever house that was acquired by the National Trust. It is well preserved but quite small and not a huge amount to see for the price of £5.50. The staff are friendly and welcoming. The shop is good with a fair choice of merchandise.

The first National Trust property and one of the oldest buildings. Love the way it is portrayed on a time line. The garden is exquisite too.
