The Garden Cottage
My wife and I have only compliments for Walmer Castle and our Garden Cottage accommodation. The apartment, on two levels, was spacious, bright and very comfortable. For a self-catering apartment the kitchen was very well equipped and included premium quality appliances. We think it is fair to say that no need was overlooked. All this plus the beautiful gardens which were ours exclusively by the cocktail hour. We look forward to our next stay in an English Heritage property.
