Note: Knole is home to a 350-strong deer herd – we advise keeping a  respectful distance as their behaviour can be unpredictable. Although it’s tempting to try to make contact with them, please help protect the wellbeing of these magnificent wild creatures by not feeding them as it is extremely dangerous to their health. Dogs must be kept under control and on leads at all times and be prevented from worrying or approaching the deer.
