We visited the Clergy house because we had the National Trust membership. It is small but really beautiful with a little shop and a small but really nice garden, where you are allowed to take books and read. Very peaceful and lovely.

A lovely very old building that was the first ever National Property purchased for £10, lovely gardens surround the house, no parking as such so best to park nearby

this a success story of restoration and was the first house to ever be given to the National Trust. It is small but a delightful snapshot in history of many many years ago
