The Garden Cottage at Walmer Castle & Gardens
Overlooking the kitchen gardens and with views of the castle, Garden Cottage provides the ideal location to explore this corner of Kent including Walmer, Deal and Dover. The spacious two bedroomed cottage has the castle to one side and the beach on the other. It looks out onto the kitchen garden, which has supplied the castle with flowers, fruit and vegetables for over three centuries. Wander through the gardens after the castle closes its doors to the public and learn about the official residence of the Lord Warden, Commander of the Cinque ports, a role that has been in existence since the 13th Century and former holders have included the Duke of Wellington, Winston Churchill and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.
