Monk’s House is a historic house located in the village of Rodmell, East Sussex, England. The house was the country home of the writer Virginia Woolf and her husband Leonard Woolf, who purchased the property in 1919. The house and garden were an important source of inspiration for Virginia Woolf, who wrote several of her major works there, including “To the Lighthouse” and “The Waves.” The garden was also designed and cultivated by the Woolfs, and Virginia wrote about it in her diary.
After Virginia’s death, Leonard continued to live at Monk’s House until his own death in 1969. The house was then left to the National Trust, and is now open to the public as a museum dedicated to the life and work of Virginia Woolf. Visitors can explore the house, garden, and surrounding countryside, as well as view exhibits and displays related to Woolf and the Bloomsbury Group.
