The Remains of the Roman Fort of Stutfall Castle (a Scheduled Ancient Monument)
This impressive and historically important property has evolved over the centuries to incorporate the splendour of its medieval heritage and the elegance of the Arts and Crafts movement of the early 20th Century. From the King Post roof of the Great Hall and ornate Gothic traceried windows and plastered ceiling to the vernacular exterior mellow stone constructions of Lorimer, the interior still retains its historic origins. Lympne Castle stands at the top of the escarpment allowing for wonderful views over the estate lands, Romney Marsh, the English Channel and, on a clear day, the French Coast.
The gardens lie mainly to the north and west of the castle and include various walled and partly walled gardens, one of which houses the swimming pool with lawned surround and paved terrace. A Kitchen garden, opposite the cottages, is partially walled and enclosed by yew hedging, fig, espalier and cooking apples, peaches, raspberries and mulberry trees line the walls. The gardens benefit from plenty of storage, glass houses, potting sheds, garaging, barns, stables, tack room and summer house.
The grounds extend to the south of the castle towards the Royal Military Canal, comprising woodland and pastureland, benefiting from a number of enclosures. The remains of Stutfall Castle are on the south western boundary of the land.
