If it wasn't for the sign, one could easily miss the entrance for Knole, Sevenoaks, Kent. But turn off the High Street and you will discover a 1,000 acre deer park which sites a 600-year-old stately home that covers four acres itself. Nice.
Originally built in the 15th century and family home to the Sackvilles for generations, the house has witnessed a dramatic restoration by part owners the National Trust, costing millions. At present only a few rooms are open to visitors but in March 2019 a grand opening reveals all their hard work and more. For the first time attics will be open to visitors complete with original graffiti and witch's marks.
Note: while out exploring the extensive grounds, look for the ring-necked parakeets that defy the odds by roosting here.
