  • "The cottage is in the most perfect location by the Weir (naturally!"

    ) so we saw an abundance of ducks and moorhens. The garden is large and beautifully planted and fully secure for our dog to roam free. The front garden has a magnificent weeping willow. The house itself is compact but very comfortable, the shower room is modern and the shower is hot and powerful. The whole of the upstairs is the bedroom, which is decorated well and has a very comfy bed. The toiletries supplied are plentiful and from the fabulously luxurious Noble Isle range. The welcome pack of snacks, biscuits, soft drinks and a pint of milk (for a welcome cup of tea on arrival) was much appreciated..(with a few teabags and coffee sachets supplied in the kitchen cupboard too). We had the most glorious week of sunshine and have taken so many sunrise and sunset we could publish a book! Castle staff throughout were extremely friendly and utterly professional. We have already booked the same week next year and were very sad to leave.

  • "The pictures of this property do not do it justice."

    A very cozy cottage, and a lovely location, with the sound of the running water from the river to soothe the sole. The garden was beautifully maintained and it would be lovely to go back in the summer to take advantage. Set on the grounds of the Leeds Castle and we took advantage of complimentary tickets during our long weekend. Would definitely recommend a stay.

    Dear Sandra We are so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed your stay at Weir Cottage. We hope to welcome you back to enjoy the Leeds Castle Estate again in the future, hopefully in the summer to fully take advantage of the cottage garden. Kindest regards The Leeds Castle Accommodation Team Property Owner

  • "A truly perfect location for a relaxing break, especially in these surreal times."

    The cottage is full of character and the garden secluded with the weir closeby, so relaxing to listen to along with the wildlife and the many fish that my husband enjoyed catching in the evening. Having access to the grounds of Leeds Castle with it's incredible scenery to enjoy only a short walk away, it was the perfect location to explore the surrounding area knowing that the cottage was there to return to for peace and quiet.

  • "The setting is lovely that cannot be denied But they need to improve their meet and great We were told to go to Broomfield road where we had trouble getting in, once at the office we were given verbal instructions to go back out of the park and into the A20 entrance, once in the entrance we had no idea where we were going, there should be a meet and great to take you to your cottage Once in there was a problem with the cold feed to the shower consequently we had to shower under a drip, we did call up but it was 1."

    5 hours before someone came at which point we were heading out for a reserved dinner We tried everything but the Wi-fi simply didn't work

Best suited to a couple looking for a romantic getaway in the country, you have access to nature on your doorstep and the chance to explore the lovely Kent Downs AONB.

An open-plan living area takes up most of the ground floor, and it's here you will find the kitchen and sitting room, as well as a folding dining table and chairs, neatly tucked away.

The corner sofa will look even more inviting after a long day of walking, opposite the shining kitchen, offering you the essential appliances for your self-catering break.

In the summer months you can take advantage of the large garden outside and let the dog have a good run around.

A sparkling shower room lies on the ground floor hosting a shower, basin and WC, maximising the space in this quaint property.

Upstairs you can find the bedroom containing a king-size bed, flooded by light from the Velux windows, with exposed wooden beams adding to its charm.

Just under a mile's walk away is the nearest pub for when you want to enjoy an evening drink, or you can head into the town of Leeds to see the popular Leeds Castle and explore the large grounds and original hedge maze.

Of course, not only are walks available on your doorstep, you have the advantage of being right next to the Kent Downs AONB, with endless opportunities for all kinds of outdoor activities and wonderful scenery to behold.

Wonderfully presented throughout, with light colour schemes and plush furnishings, making the most of an ideal setting.

Staying in any of the cottages in this group entitles you to entry to Leeds Castle and the grounds during the day, and in the evening you are free to continue exlporing the grounds after it's been closed to the public.
