Its not the biggest of places but this gem of a national trust place is really worth a visit. The house is very beautiful and the setting couldn't be better. The gardens are quite small but very well kept. The house itself has many interesting features and the staff are very helpful and love to tell you about the building... More

Ightham Mote is one of the must visit National Trust properties in the SOuth East. It is beautifully preserved and restored. The gardens also beautifully maintained.

When we visited Ightham it was a beautiful sunny day which added to a perfect visit. The house is very interesting and the guides are full of information and also very friendly. The grounds are ideal for a gentle stroll or a nice picnic and for letting the kids have a play. Restaurant very good also there is a shop... More

I have very impressed by this beautifully restored building. The National trust have done a wonderful job restoring this building and looking after the lovely gardens. The history of the building from the 14th century to the last owner Mr Robertson is fascinating. The staff were so friendly and talkative and you could tell they loved their jobs. There is... More

We thought we would have a day out at Ightham Mote. The last time we went there it was a building under renovation. We found it to be a lovely place and well worth a visit. We did wait and listen to a gentleman who was giving a talk about the history of the place. Really interesting and you could... More

I so loved this place. We arrived not knowing what to expect and were quickly taken in by the beautiful mote. We put our names down for a guided tour of the gardens and had a wonderful wander around the extended grounds with a wonderful guide. We stayed longer than we expected but were able to get a lunch in... More

Choose a lovely day and you won't be disappointed. Plenty of parking, small coffee shop and gift shop. Lovely to walk around the gardens and then around the house. Has a vegetable garden, lake and a mote around the house. It's a national heritage , so quite expensive for what it is but great for a card holder.
