Alfriston village is well worth a visit. This property situated on the green next to the church will take about 1hr. Well preserved property and beautiful and peaceful gardens.Lucky if you can get parked nearby but main car park other end of the village so you can view this quaint village on your stroll. well worth the visit.

This property is so interesting and historic. It is possible to see how people lived through the generations right up to its last occupant. The garden is very pretty and well maintained. Lovely to sit in the garden and take it all in. Alfriston is a popular and attractive village but parking quite difficult on a busy summer Saturday.

The gardens were very nice and the house itself was quite interesting to see. Well worth a quick stop to see if you are travelling near!

Tucked away behind the St. Andrew's Church, the house is the first ever property aquired by the NT. The house is beautiful restored and worth a visit: small but beautiful! The garden surrounding the house is colourful, tranquil and relaxing and gives a view of the surrounding area. Very informative guide Patricia!

This is a small cottage with an interesting history having started as a farm house and as many have commented, the first NT building. It only takes an hour or so to go around the house and gardens, with a bread oven in a huge fireplace (which you can stand in as I did), remarkable full height hall, stone sink... More

Alfriston is a pretty Sussex Village on the South Downs close to a river and on a Sunny day this N.T. Property is worth a look. It is not a large property and it has a small but interesting garden. Unlike many N.T. Houses most people can manage to access and enjoy this house. There is a beautiful Village Church... More

We were staying in Alfriston at the Star (please see my review if interested) and as National Trust members spent a pleasant hour or two at the Clergy House. Loved it here, particularly the lovely little garden area. Very worth paying a visit if you are in this delightful part of Sussex...
