Medieval thatched Wealden hall-house and picturesque garden
This rare 14th-century Wealden hall-house was the first building to be acquired by the National Trust, in 1896.
The thatched, timber-framed house is in an idyllic setting, with views across the River Cuckmere, and surrounded by a delightful, tranquil cottage garden full of wildlife.
