Knole, Sevenoaks

4.3
Explore the 365-room house and surrounding deer park at Knole. According to the National Trust, this mansion may have been a "calendar house," built with 365 rooms, 52 staircases, 12 entrances, and 7 courtyards. In the old estate office, listen to interviews with servants, residents, and conservation workers. Approach some of the 500 deer--descendants of the same deer herd hunted by Henry VIII, a prior resident of the house--wandering the 405 hectare (1,000 acre) park.

  • Fabulous property and brilliant "highlights tour" volunteer, Jill, telling us the history of the house. Lovely to see so many deer in the grounds - got some amazing photos of them as they are quite tame. Also a delightful cafe where we had a delicious lunch.
  • Amazing house and grounds. Well kept property and lots of volunteers on hand. Found the cycling tracks a little hard to stay on and ended up in various places but different terrain and good for shortish rides. The cafe was great as always at national trust sites, bit of a wasp issue outside though! Recommended day out and great to see deer freely roaming the park. Caused us no issues.
  • The walk around the grounds and the photographing of the deer was delightful. The visit to the house was very disappointing when you consider the amount of rooms there are and only seeing three out of all of them. I would be sorry for anyone who paid the entrance fee of £12.50 each. I appreciate Knowle is still lived in but people who appreciate these properties expect a certain level of viewing experience.
  • This is a striking building in a beautiful location. There is still much to do but the National Trust are doing extremely well. I look forward to returning regularly to watch progress and visiting the new Conservation Centre.
  • Views outstanding. Loads of deer wandering around really nice to see. Castle having work done at the moment but still rooms to see. Eating places are new and excellent roof top eating very nice. Great place
