Holiday Cottage - Sleeps 6 people


The Guard's House is the perfect retreat for those who love the outdoor life. The stunning location is ideal for country pursuits and woodland walks.

Located on the outskirts of the Leeds Castle estate in the picturesque village of Broomfield. Access to the Castle is either a half mile walk or a short drive to the Broomfield entrance. The grade II listed building comfortably sleeps up to six adults with one kingsize and two twin bedrooms.

The Guard's House has been refurbished to the highest standard and provides guests with modern amenities in luxury fully heated accommodation, situated in the heart of the beautiful Kent countryside.

Dating back to the Regency period from around 1810, it was once used as a soldier’s barracks and interconnected with the neighbouring cottages.

The cottage retains a strong historic feel and original period features including diamond paned leaded light windows, thick ragstone walls, an unusual curved wooden front door plus the original pantry.

The redesigned spacious garden to the rear of the property provides an ideal space for private BBQs with your party and enjoys beautiful views of the extensive woodland owned by Leeds Castle from the decked seating area.

There is a small garden to the front of the cottage and private parking is available for three cars.

The Guard's House is also dog-friendly, making it a perfect retreat for dog lovers.
