Lose yourself in this romantic moated manor house, described as 'one of the most beautiful and interesting of English country houses'. Nestled at the bottom of a path sits this picture-perfect 14th century timber framed moated manor house.
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.
Discover the stories of the house's owners and see how it changed through the centuries.
The gardens are as equally diverse as the house - a formal lawn, flower borders, secret glades and a sweetly scented cuttings garden. And then there are walks and views taking in lakes, an orchard, ancient bluebell woodland and Kentish farmland. Tours of the garden are available during the day, starting from by the moat.
