    The cottage was full of character, but looking a little bit tired. Could go with a spruce up.

    Cottage very well looked after by the team at Leeds castle. Large garden with decking well maintained and fully enclosed so safe for dogs. Great to know you could contact reception if needed. The lane you need to travel to get to the cottage, although short is narrow with some blind bends so needs to be travelled with care. We used it as a base to visit family in the area but fabulous to be able to visit the Castle whilst there.

    We had a lovely week at the Guards House. Great to be able to visit Leeds castle several times and make use of the playgrounds, restaurant and coffee shops. It would be nice if a footpath could link the property to the public footpath to the castle. The single track road to reach it is very busy and I felt quite uncomfortable walking down there with my children. Saying that use can always drive. The upstairs shower was very temperamental but otherwise the cottage was clean and pleasant. Nice to be able to bring the dog.
