Owletts is of historic architectural interest as it was the family home of the renowned architect Sir Herbert Baker, and is considered an example of a Kent country home. Key features of this National Trust property include an oval stained glass window and the Empire Clock that he co-designed with his son, which can tell the time all around the world. There is also a house trail for children, swings, a sunken garden, and grounds that are run by the National Trust.
