If you are after a building of incredible character and charisma, or you want a beautiful garden with ponds, orchards or a thatched barn you certainly can't really go wrong with Smallhythe Place. It is owned and maintained by the National Trust and is located near Tenterden in Kent.

It was the home of the actress Dame Ellen Terry (27/02/1947-21/07/1928) who was born into an acting family and who herself would become the leading Shakespearean actress in Britain.

Dame Ellen Terry living in this house from 1899 up until her death in 1928. The property contains a collection of theatrical memorabilia and a small theatre  in a converted barn thatched roof which still puts on plays for crowds to enjoy to this day.
