Easter visit to Scotney Castle,  Bodiam Castle and Knole House

We had a lovely visit to the National Trust’s Scotney CastleBodiam Castle and Knole House in Kent, this Easter weekend. Scotney also has a really interesting house given over to the National Trust in 2006 when the owner Betty Hussey died aged 99 in 2006. Her cat Puss still lives there.  

  

Bodiam Castle is much older and a proper castle.

Knole House hosts an incredible collection of art and beds from the 17th century. There are many bedrooms containing beds that had been passed down, second hand, from  English Kings. An incredible place.

We had a great Easter weekend visiting these 3 National Trust properties and look forward to discovering more over the next year with our annual membership 😃
