DescriptionAlfriston Clergy House
Medieval thatched cottage and picturesque garden
This 14th-century thatched Wealden 'hall house' was the first building to be acquired by the National Trust in 1896. It has an unusual chalk and sour milk floor and its pretty cottage garden is in an idyllic setting beside Alfriston's parish church, with views across the meandering River Cuckmere
