The tranquillity of the Sussex Downs attracted novelist Virginia Woolf and her husband Leonard to Monk’s House, the 16th century cottage they bought in 1919 as a country retreat. Now owned by the National Trust, the cottage’s rustic simplicity provided the setting for Virginia to pen her seminal feminist essay, A Room of One’s Own.

Good suggestions. I only wish! Though I may manage to paint the living room in that rather transporting green. Amazing how the Bloomsbury domestic interiors are simultaneously calming and stimulating...
