Knowledgeable volunteers and interesting information about the National Trust as a result of our hour visit. Peaceful surroundings.

A very interesting place, with an excellent house guide and a quaint, attractive garden. It was lovely but doesn't take long. We combined it with lunch at Deans Place Hotel next door and a walk around the village; this worked really well.

We only stopped here en-route to Beachy Head, but this was the highlight of the day. Albeit small, the Clergy House was interesting to see, from the landowning-role of the church, through to how the NT came about and even where the logo came from....More

Very pleasant visit to the Clergy house, just a small building but furnished in just the right style. The cottage garden sets off the building perfectly.

Visited here for the first time in the 1990's and, boy, has it improved! Nice setting, very helpful staff and good outdoor as well as indoor viewings. Now this is not grand palatial pad but it is the first building the NT ever bought and...More

The first house the NT bought. Small thatched house in beautiful village. Usual expert volunteer guides, describing the chalk and sour milk flooring(goes green) and showing us the carpenters mark, and oak leaf used to inspire the NT logo

We missed seeing it before because it is closed on a Thursday and Friday. Difficult parking but Monday is probably a less busy day. Lovely National Trust Volunteers guided us. It was so interesting,being the first property bought by Octavia Hill for the National Trust....More

I am a National Trust member and only visited as I was in the area, but what a extraordinary find, particularly as it is the first property the National Trust ever got! A lovely little shop, and worth visiting the village too.

Second visit in 20 years. The place is much better than it was 20 years ago. the house is interesting, but the garden is just superb. Well worth a visit
