  The Detail...

Stay in Maidens Tower in the grounds of the gorgeous Leeds Castle, one of the best-kept castles in the country. Dating back around 900 years, the castle is full of history having been built by a Norman baron and playing host over the centuries to medieval queens and even Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon. The castle, set in 500 acres of beautiful gardens and parkland and surrounded by a moat, is a truly romantic setting for a couples escape with a bit of regal charm.

To access Maidens Tower, cross over the moat and make your way through the grand entrance tower where youll find the drive which sweeps up to the castle and round to the tower on the right. Maidens Tower itself dates back to the 16th Century and there are five ensuite bathrooms, each named after a princess who has stayed in the castle. The decor combines Tudor style with modern luxury, antique furniture, and gilt-framed paintings paired with large and contemporary bathrooms.

The centrepiece of each room is the grand and luxurious sleigh bed, which have highly polished frames and sumptuous bedding. Fluffy white towels and robes are waiting for you in the contemporary bathrooms where youll find huge bathtubs, perfect for a long relaxing soak in the evening. There are stunning views from all sides, either of the castle or looking out over the moat and the gardens and parkland beyond.

Take a stroll across the grounds to Castle View Restaurant where breakfast is served every morning. Enjoy your full English or continental breakfast made with fresh local produce while taking in the gorgeous views of the castle. Tables at the restaurant can also be reserved for dinner and theres a delicious Afternoon Tea on offer if youre visiting at the weekend.

You are free to wander through the grounds and gardens during your stay and theres plenty to do without leaving the property. From exploring the castle to getting lost in the maze to punting on the moat, theres something for everyone. Get to know the estate with a circular walk that takes you around the grounds or visit one of the exhibitions at The Gatehouse or even the unique Dog Collar Museum. If you reach the centre of the maze, you can return to the grounds through the underground grotto with its walls covered with beautiful mosaics. Theres also a Bird of Prey Centre where you can see incredible displays by falcons, owls, hawks and even vultures.
