Lamb House

West Street, RYE, TN31 7ES

This 18th-century house was the home of novelist Henry James from 1898 until his death in 1916, and was later occupied by the writer E F Benson, who used Lamb House as the model for 'Mallards' in his Mapp and Lucia novels. Some of James' personal possessions can be seen. There is also a charming walled garden.
