Monk's House

Nestled in the heart of rural Sussex, Monk’s House is a tranquil 17th century weatherboarded cottage inhabited by Leonard and the novelist, Virginia Woolf, from 1919 until Leonards death in 1969.

Get to know Leonard and Virginia Woolf and the wider Bloomsbury Group by visiting Monk's House. Full of their favourite things, the house appears as if they just stepped out for a walk.

The Woolfs bought Monk's House for the 'shape and fertlity and wildness of the garden'. Today, the lovely cottage garden contains a mix of flowers, vegetables, orchards, lawns and ponds.
