Ightham Mote

Outstanding 14th-century moated manor house
Lose yourself in this romantic moated manor house, described by David Starkey as ‘one of the most beautiful and interesting of English country houses’.

Built nearly 700 years ago, this house has seen many changes and been owned by Medieval knights, courtiers to Henry VIII and high society Victorians.

Highlights include the picturesque courtyard, Great Hall, crypt, Tudor painted ceiling, Grade I listed dog kennel and the private apartments of Charles Henry Robinson, who gave Ightham Mote to the National Trust in 1985.

The building is surrounded by peaceful gardens with an orchard, water features, lakes and woodland walks.
