Sevenoaks, one of the nicest leafy commuter towns just 22 minutes outside of London, in the county of Kent. 

Right in the heart of the town’s high street is Knole one of England’s largest houses, surrounded by a 1000-acre deer park. The house was closed but the private garden was open, which is a full day’s outing all on its own. 

The estate is home to some of the most beautiful landscapes you’re likely to see close to London, with deer roaming wild and free at just about every turn. 

It’s hard to miss the fallow deer in Knole’s parkland. They are owned and managed by the Sackville family’s Knole Estate.

The gardens are beautifully landscaped.

Of course some of us thought it essential that we buy this book so that the rest of us can stay educated.
