Overview

Owned variously by Henry VIII, Anne of Cleves, Mary I and Elizabeth I, The Priesthouse, sitting on the edge of the Ashdown Forest in Sussex, is a 15th century Wealdon Hall house laid out and furnished in 17th and 18th century style. Period furniture and domestic objects set the scene inside while outside the garden is planted with 170 culinary, medicinal and household herbs. Take a tour with the resident curator to find out all about this fascinating building (picnics are welcome in the grounds too). This is a great learning opportunity for children as well – there is information on how a house was built and furnished and what it was like to live in a time before the invention of the electric light, central heating and flushing toilets.
