First National Trust building. We could only see outside as it was closed, but worth a look even so.

As other reviewers have noted, this was the first property bought by the nascent National Trust and they rescued it from decay and dereliction. If you are touring in the South Downs/Eastbourne area I recommend a brief visit here. The welcome is friendly and the NT stewards/volunteers know everything about this ancient building so will answer any questions you may... More

The National Trust have really looked after this treasure set in the beautiful countryside. It is a pleasure to walk round and envision in your mind how these people lived. The furniture is authentic and well placed around the rooms, the galley is laid out as if to start a meal for that day, my son is very interested in... More

The clergy house at Alfriston is perhaps not easiest of places to get to, given the difficulty of parking - indeed, we gave up on our first attempt nearly 8 years previously! This time we avoided such problems by staying in the village itself (which I'd thoroughly recommend, as the village is particularly delightful in the late afternoon/early evening). The... More

Brilliant house and gardens. Very beautiful-the flowers were in full bloom and the little stream running by was idilic. Massive fan of the National Trust here!

Stumbled on this while visiting the picture postcard village of Alfriston - it is the first property ever bought by the National Trust. The stewards were so keen to show us around and talk to us it was wonderful. Beautiful gardens and a lovely location.

Don't visit here if you have mobility issues because the very nature of it is that it's a very old small house with uneven floors , steps down into rooms , low doorways and ceilings , and the whole house and garden is quite small with narrow paths and steps. Having said that , the house is a real delight,... More

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. Initially we couldn’t even get through the entrance to the... More
