Eastwell Park, Kent

Eastwell Park was an English stately home in the civil parish of Eastwell, adjoining Ashford in Kent, that for a time served as a royal residence. The house was demolished in the 1920s and replaced with a large house called Eastwell Manor, which is now a country house hotel. The original house was built for Sir Thomas Moyle between 1540 and 1550 by Richard Plantagenet (Richard of Eastwell), who claimed to be a son of Richard III of England.
