Well, historically, Castles wer not really one structure - they were an evolution of a Manor House.
Manor Houses were stone, fortified structures that contained kitchens, feasting halls, bedrooms, stables, etc.
Then eventually, walls were added to create a courtyard, then towers... wala! a Castle.
I think these are meant to be more like Manor Houses, rather than a castle.
