About Knights Cottage, Leeds Castle

This inviting home is wonderfully charming with picturesque views from the living room across the garden to the lush country estate. Knights Cottage offers light and spacious rooms with beautiful soft furnishings that have been individually made by the castle seamstress, creating a really cosy ambience. There are three generous sized bedrooms and two bathrooms, as well as an enormous fully enclosed garden overlooking the vineyard within the grounds of the castle - a real wow factor. The perfect place to sit and enjoy a summer BBQ and glass of chilled wine after a day exploring the grounds.

A short stroll from the cottage takes you to the famous yew tree castle maze where children and adults alike can have hours of fun trying to find their way to the top. Once the activities and sights of Leeds Castle have been exhausted, this cottage would be a perfect base for those wishing to explore the wider Kent countryside. It is a walker's paradise with plenty of National Trust properties, cosy pubs and quaint towns to visit, what more could you want from a relaxing weekend away with friends and family.

Guests are given a free pass to the castle and are welcome to wander around the castle and grounds at leisure and enjoy everything that this magical place has to offer.

This is truly a hidden gem of a Kent holiday cottage, a real taste of living in a country residence with all the charm and history you would want from your holiday.
