Monk's House

About

A small weather-boarded house, the home of Leonard and Virginia Woolf until Leonard's death in 1969. The rooms reflect the life and times of the literary circle in which they moved. Car park 50m; village street too narrow for coaches; drivers must set passengers down at main road junction, then park elsewhere.

The house and garden are administered and largely maintained on the Trust's behalf by a tenant.


National Trust properties nearby: Alfriston Clergy House, Sheffield Park Garden.
