Welcome to the
LEES COURT ESTATE
The Lees Court Estate has been described as the finest Estate in Kent. The Estate has been in the Sondes family for the past 800 years and became the centre of The Countess Sondes’ life on the death of her husband, Henry George Herbert, The Fifth Earl Sondes in 1996.
The Estate, during the early 1900’s, was 85,000 acres. Today the Estate is 6,900 acres with a core of 2,663 acres around the villages of Sheldwich and Badlesmere with the balance at The Swale Estuary, Oare and Faversham Creeks.
