Family home of the renowned architect Sir Herbert Baker
This Charles II house is an extraordinary example of a Kent country home. As you wander round the house, you will see the architectural influences of its most famous owner, architect Sir Herbert Baker.
Chat to the friendly room guides and look out for some of the favourite features such as the oval stained glass window, the electrical empire clock and the 17th-century plaster ceiling. To keep the children entertained, don’t forget to pick up the house trail.
In the garden, the area in front of the house has been opened up for passers by to enjoy, whilst the sunken garden is a sun trap. Extend your day by relaxing in the newly extended tea-room, or enjoy a picnic in the garden.
