Scotney Castle

01st May 2010
I decided to go to Scotney Castle in Lamberhurst, Kent on Thursday. This estate is owned and maintained by the National Trust. It consists of two properties - the old ruins, which is surrounded by a scenic moat and gardens, and at the top of the estate lies the modern Elizabethan style house which was built in 1837 for Edward Hussey III.

The inside of the House has amazing architecture and furnishings. On the day that we visited, the whole of the house had been transformed back in time to the day of Christopher Hussey, and his wife Betty's Wedding Day.

To me, the whole estate has a Disney fairy tale look and feel to it, as it is very romantic and peaceful. The Gardens are very well looked after, and are stunning when in full bloom.

For the £9 entry price, it is well worth a visit. As you approach the estate from the road, the entrance is just on a corner, and the entrance is slighty hidden to the driver. The food is good and reasonable priced and the staff are very knowledgeable and polite.
