Godmersham Park passed to John Cunliffe Lister, 3rd Baron Masham, who sold it in 1921 to William Legge, 6th Earl of Dartmouth. In 1935, Godmersham Park was sold to Mr and Mrs Robert Tritton, who restored the house. Walter Sarel remodelled the building, much of the interior being replaced using genuine eighteenth-century features recovered from buildings across England. Norah Lindsay advised on restoration of the walled gardens. The house became a Grade I listed building in 1952, and the gardens were separately listed in Grade II* in 1986, with other garden features listed as Grade II.
