Leeds Castle is one of the UK’s most popular and visited castles.

So much more than a castle, it hosts a vast number of events right through the year. For couples or families, it makes a perfect spot to enjoy for a weekend getaway with active experiences, right through chilled escapes.

To make it the perfect staycation in Kent, you’ll need a hotel near Leeds Castle to do so. Luckily, we are just down the road and have a plethora of stunning lodge style rooms onside alongside our pub and restaurant.

As a hotel near Leeds Castle, we are chosen by many due to our extremely close proximity to this fabulous historic estate which is formed by the River Len in Kent. If you’re driving, we’re just a short 8–10-minute drive at just under four miles from Leeds Castle – with the travel directly through the wonderful Bearsted village very quick and simple.

The castle is even walkable from the Black Horse Inn grounds, either through the village of Bearsted or via Broad Street into Hollingbourne. Just speak to our staff about advice on walks in the local area.

More than just a hotel near Leeds Castle .

We have a variety of wonderful rooms available, from single rooms to double/twin rooms to family rooms. Equipped with essentials like free Wi-Fi, TVs, and much more – our guests love the fact that the rooms are detached from our main building which features the pub and restaurant.

Still, the rooms are located in very close proximity, meaning that you can enjoy the above at your leisure – although we do advise booking tables as things can get very busy at peak times.

So, if you’re looking to make a just a night of it or a few days with Leeds Castle included, we are based on the North Downs meaning there is so much to do in the local area with some incredible walks – with routes available at our reception or downloadable via our local area section.
