Nestled in the heart of a spectacular 600 acres park is a stunning 1920's mansion, which boasts many interesting and unique architectural features including art deco mural rooms. The house sits among 15 acres of magnificent landscaped gardens with views across Romney marsh and the channel to France.

The Port Lympne Mansion was built in 1912 for the Right Honourable Philip Sassoon. The exterior reflects the Dutch Colonial style of architecture and the Mansion was often said to be the last historic house of that century. The walls are made from 2 and a half inch bricks, the roof from old Kent tiles and the window frames from solid oak.

The interior has the essence of a roman villa, with marble columns, sweeping stone staircase and tessellated hall. The hallway floor is made from black and white marble in concentric curves and is fascinating to the eye.
