Leeds Castle is opening a ‘luxury’ lakeside lodge in time for Christmas

There’s nothing like a well-deserved Christmas break, and if you’re looking to head somewhere new for a festive break this year, Leeds Castle may have just what you need. A popular landmark near Maidstone has announced it is launching four new ‘luxury’ lodges – and they will be available to stay this winter.

Set within 500 acres of historic parkland, Leeds Castle is one of the county’s most popular attractions, and Lakeside Lodges are said to be able to ‘provide an exclusive retreat for guests seeking a peaceful escape’. Accessed via a private walkway that will take guests past the impressive Lady Baillie Mediterranean Garden Terraces, the lodge will provide direct access to the Grade I-listed castle and its array of amenities and facilities.

One of the new lodge’s most notable features is the magical view it will offer of the Great Water from the private deck, as well as exceptional nighttime views through the stargazing rooflight directly above guests’ beds. The lodge was designed by Koto and features “sculptural forms” intended to maximize natural light and allow guests to “immerse yourself in nature.”

In addition, the lodge will feature private spaces where guests can relax and make the most of the stunning landscape, while also enjoying relaxing in the luxurious Lusso stone bathroom, which features a stylish black outdoor bathtub. It also benefits from large-opening sliding doors that enhance natural ventilation, and a motorized blind system.

Leeds Castle has confirmed that booking for the lodge is now open for stays from Friday 8 December. Lakeside Lodges are priced at GBP 325 per night on a bed and breakfast basis for 2 adults.
