Heres Ightham Mote in Kent, England - a rare surviving example of a moated medieval manor house dating from the early part of the 14th-century with important later additions and alterations. The builder of Ightham Mote is as yet unknown but the first known owner was Sir Thomas Cawne (c1360-1374).

That looks like a fortified church to me, not a castle/palace.

It is very interesting to point out that both UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Mir Castle and Drottningholm Palace in Stockholm have much to do with the history of Poland.

Firstly the Mir Castle belonged for centuries to the Radziwiłł family and was part of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. Until the Soviet aggression in September 1939 Mir was in Poland and the castle belonged to the Polish family Świętopełk-Mirski.

Secondly, the Drottningholm Palace was built by the Swedish king John III for his wife queen Katarzyna Jagiellonka in 1580. She was daughter of the Polish king Zygmunt I Stary (1506-1548), sister of the Polish king Zygmunt II August (1548-1572) and the mother of the Polish king Zygmunt III Waza (1587-1632). All of them were also grand dukes of Lithuania
