Castle on the Lake
Leeds Castle is our favorite castle. A residence until the 1970’s, it still has the furnishings and feeling of an elegant home. It feels like you could live there. It is a lovely setting, with a Romantic garden covering the hills around the lake.
There are several buildings which make up the castle. One even sits on a stone outcropping. The entire castle is surrounded by water and connected to land by a stone bridge and guardhouse. The castle’s Norman origins can still be seen in the arches in the wine cellar. Evidence throughout the castle shows the many additions made over the years.
