Much of the medieval parish church of St Mary collapsed in 1951, and most of the ruins were demolished in 1956. Only the 15th-century west tower, the west wall of the south aisle and a 19th-century mortuary chapel remain standing. Since 1980 the remains have been a Scheduled Ancient Monument and cared for by the Friends of Friendless Churches charity.
Eastwell Park is a country estate almost one square mile in area surrounding Eastwell Manor, a Jacobethan country house completed in 1848. Eastwell Lake was created at the same time. The hotel offers a golf course, indoor swimming pool and horseriding.
Contemporary with the house is Eastwell Towers, a Jacobethan gatehouse in the adjacent parish of Boughton Aluph. The drive from the gatehouse to the manor house is about 1 mile (1.6 km) long.
Lake House is a late 13th-century house in Eastwell Park south of the manor house. It has a 17th-century roof and 19th-century windows, but retains four original windows, now blocked. It is a Grade II* listed building.
