Browse the new shop and discover new delights
Knole's shop has relocated to the old Estate Office in Green Court and is now open to welcome visitors to browse at their leisure. Come and see the much improved, dedicated space with extended lines and additional stock. You can choose from the National Trust seasonal collections of homewares, bags and accessories, souvenir items, food and drink, pocket money toys plus local items made by craftspeople in Kent.
Seasonal items to inspire and refresh your home
Every season, a new collection is released inspired by a National Trust property or outdoor space. Inspiration can come from many areas - the flora or fauna of an outdoor site, the detail on a wooden panel or a piece of embroidery. Every collection has a story and a heritage, reflecting the diversity of the properties we look after within the National Trust.
The season, the theme is Riverlands. The exclusive prints have taken inspiration from rich foliage-lined river banks, grass wetlands and the buzzing wildlife found in these tranquil places. Through elegant textures, bold hues and intricate details, we celebrate how healthy rivers, streams and wetlands help support the environment and redefine places they run through. The collection also highlights how nature’s waterways nourish and inspire us with their sights and sounds of beauty.
Within this collection is the Nymans Foliage range, inspired by the rich plant life and lush and healthy foliage that surround the woodland stream in Nymans, West Sussex. This bright and vibrant print can be found across tea towels, cushions, serviettes, as well as packaging for vibrant and uplifting fragrances. These have notes of petitgrain, enhanced by a floral note of orange blossom, sweetened by juicy orange on a base of creamy sandalwood. Definitely something to refresh the senses.
Food and drink treats to take home
If you enjoy a jam, pickle or chutney, then take your pick from the National Trust range available in the shop. Whether you prefer a classic strawberry jam on your scone, or something a bit more unusual like passionfruit curd, you'll find something to appeal to your taste. Or if savoury tickles your tastebuds more, then why not try the pear, orange and ginger chutney with your cheese and crackers? There are plenty of ciders, juices and British wines to accompany your choice.
Items to interest young visitors
Whilst the bookshop is closed, we've moved some books over for our younger visitors, as well as having a selection of pocket money toys and activity sets, plus some items that would make great gifts. All of these are displayed in the bookcase in the shop so do bring them in to take a look. We also have our range of Knole souvenirs, which includes pens, pencils, notepads, bookmarks and more for some affordable gifts for kids to take home.
We are working to open the bookshop shortly after the gift shop opens. Please bear with us whilst we work to get it Covid-compliant.
Embrace the warmer days
With the temperature gradually rising and the evenings staying lighter for longer, it's time to throw on a lightweight scarf or don a new hat. A accessory could be just the way to brighten up your day, so take a look at the range in the shop and if you need inspiration on how to style your scarf, there's even a book for that.
Local goods made by local craftspeople
We're delighted to be able to showcase the talents of several local craftspeople in the shop, including potters, jewellery makers and sheep farmers. Kent has a wealth of natural resources and inspiring landscapes that we're pleased to share with you through our local ranges.
Mary Wright is a potter based in Sevenoaks who was inspired by the wisteria in Lord Sackville's garden to produce a range of plates, bowls, jugs and vases for Knole.
" Knole has the longest wisteria outside of China growing along one wall in the gardens. This collection is inspired by it, the long tendrils and those wonderful flowers. They seem to appear as if by magic from bare stems, the leaves coming later."
Romney Marsh Wools produce natural wool fat soaps and skin care products, as well as soft, cosy cushions and throws. Lanolin is the naturally occurring fat in wool, which helps protect wool and skin against the environment. These property make it ideal to use in soaps, body lotions and shower gels which are kind to the skin and smell wonderful. Take a look at the range in the shop and treat your skin to some nourishment as the season changes.
