Holiday Cottage - Sleeps up to 12 people


Sleeping up to 12 people, River Lodge is the perfect option for large families, perhaps with grandparents too; or two separate families staying together and making the most of all the activities within the Leeds Castle estate. The Lodge is situated in a secluded position with a large private garden and outdoor seating area, overlooking the Weir Pond which is rich in wildlife and waterfowl. 

The main house sleeps ten providing flexible accommodation in five bedrooms and three bathrooms, plus the annex that sleeps two. The property was first and foremost the gamekeepers residence and has many original features combined with antiques and modern furnishings to provide comfortable and tasteful surroundings. The Aga (as well as a conventional cooker) in the larger house means there is a wonderful homely feel. A cot and highchair are available upon request.
