Visited Lamb House, one of the settings for both series of Mapp & Lucia. Rye is a beautiful town, with a lot to offer. Now the house. As for the house. As a National Trust member, I got in free. But I don't think the charge is justified. There were only 3 rooms to see and the garden. A bit... More

Wonderful to see how the house had been used for the TV series and to see Benson and Henry James used the house. Tea in the garden was very pleasant. Free entry with our National Trust membership cards was an added bonus

The Lamb House isn't really about seeing the house (only 3 rooms on the first floor are open), but about seeing things by two of its prominent inhabitants, Henry James and EF Benson. Still, it's a lovely house with great gardens (which you can walk through).

Surprisingly small house, but well worth a visit and the garden is wonderful, we spent quite some time just sitting there as even in March it was nice.
