Monk’s House, the weather-boarded cottage of Leonard and Virginia Woolf, near Lewes in East Sussex, is open Wednesdays to Sundays until 27 October. The rooms appear much as they would have done when Virginia created some of her best-known works and include her special ‘writing hut’ in the garden.

Sissinghurst Castle also has an exhibition with new insights into the marriage of Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicholson, including a newly discovered poem written by Vita to Violet Trefusis.

Details of both venues from the National Trust Website.
