About

An early Georgian house and walled garden which was the home of the American writer Henry James, from 1898 to 1916 and later of author, E F Benson, famous for the Mapp and Lucia stories.

Several ground floor rooms are open to visitors and contain some of James' furniture, pictures and personal possessions, photographs and letters.

The walled garden is one of the largest gardens in the old town of Rye and was designed by a friend of Henry James called Alfred Parsons.
