We visited Owletts for a second time and it was like returning to a family friend's home. As National Trust members living in Kent we visit many of our local houses and gardens regularly for walks, picnics and of course the tea rooms as well...More
As newly members of national trust we are excited to visit as many property's as we can.
Owletts is a little hard to find but is so worth it.
Only the downstairs is open as it is still lived in and I believe is only...More
Only the downstairs is open to the public but make sure you do at least go up the staircase because there is a marvellous plasterwork ceiling dating from 1684 ... almost unique in a small house. Two other things not to miss, the Empire Clock...More
What a great little venue not many parts of it are actually accessible to the public as family still live there, but what you can see is great and beautifully presented.
It was helped as it was a lovely day and they had doors and...More

We have been wanting to visit here for a while, but being a private house it is only open on certain Sundays throughout the year. Finally went to visit this weekend and had a lovely time. Only a few rooms of the house are open...More

Like many locals I have lived near this property for years and not been in because of its limited opening times. This weekend I finally made it and was able to take advantage of their being costumed guides showing off the house and its contents...More
Gday Mrs. H, My wife and I and children have lived here since 2012, my cousins before that, and I lived here as a child until the mid 90s. So, yes, the child may have been mine and I may have been that child 25 years ago... More
Gday Mrs. H, My wife and I and children have lived here since 2012, my cousins before that, and I lived here as a child until the mid 90s. So, yes, the child may have been mine and I may have been that child 25 years ago, well a large child by that time
Then if you had come earlier, there have been Bakers here since 1793.
We hope you come again soon and reminisce!
