Port Lympne, the wild animal reserve-style park near Ashford in Kent has opened a six-bedroom property within its grounds.

The Mansion is a 99-year old Dutch colonial style building designed by Kent architect Sir Herbert Baker who was influenced by his time living in Africa.

He was commissioned by local MP Philip Sassoon who used the house for entertaining friends including Winston Churchill.

The bedrooms, decorated by general manager Sam Lloyd using Osborne and Little fabrics are all named after Sassoon’s illustrious guests.

The hotel is offering packages including luxury picnics in the grounds (not in animal enclosures) and the chance to spend time with one of the keepers at the park on a special behind the scenes tour.
