Fodor's Expert Review Monk's House

Lewes Historic Home

Of particular interest to Bloomsbury Group fans, this property three miles south of Lewes was the home of novelist Virginia Woolf and her husband, Leonard Woolf, who bought it in 1919. Leonard lived here until his death in 1969. Rooms in the small cottage include Virginia's study and her bedroom. Artists Vanessa Bell (Virginia's sister) and Duncan Grant helped decorate the house.
