Knole Park

Knole is one of the largest houses in England surrounded by 1000 acres of deer park. Both park and house are remarkable and unusual survivals from late medieval times.

The house has been shown off to visitors for the past 500 years. Thirteen show rooms remain much as they were in the 18th century, when they were laid out to impress visitors with the Sackvilles’ wealth. The birthplace and childhood home of Vita Sackville-West, who went on to create the gardens at Sissinghurst, Knole was also the setting for Virgina Woolf’s novel ‘Orlando’. The house includes world-renowned Stuart furniture, important paintings and the prototype of the famous Knole settee. Knole is also Kent’s last medieval deer park, with around 400 fallow and sika deer and the tallest oak in the British Isles and several of the tallest trees in Kent.

Note – over the winter period the tea-room is open at weekends. Otherwise the property is closed to cars, but the park is open to pedestrians at all times.
