We're situated in the historic village of Alfriston. Nestling in the valley of the Cuckmere River on the South Downs Way, Alfriston is full of charm and it's a perfect place to shop and eat. (Not NT.)

We've raised the roof

Finally the roof has been completely re-thatched as the eastern hip was finished this January.

Thanks to donations from National Trust associations, members and our own volunteers, the work was able to take place and lasted two weeks.

Master Thatcher Roger Evans worked through the rain, wind and snow to get the job done ready for all to admire as we open for the new season.
