Alfriston Clergy House is a 14th-century, timber-framed, Wealden hall-house with garden in the village of Alfriston in East Sussex.
This rare two-storey, thatched, timber-framed, Wealden hall-house was built in 1350 and is located in the historic village of Alfriston. The house was the first property to be acquired by the National Trust for preservation and it was bought in 1896 for the princely sum of £10. Things to see inside include a timeline telling the house’s history, a Tudor fireplace with bread oven, a collection of period furniture and an oak leaf carved into one of the timbers in the great hall, which may have been the inspiration for the National Trust’s logo. There is also a picture of the house in it’s dilapidated condition prior to restoration by the National Trust.
The house also has a picturesque cottage garden running alongside the Cuckmere river with an orchard, vegetable and herb garden, a rose terrace and a box tree garden.
