What a fabulous approach to the house! We listened to one of the guides give us a very interesting 15 minute introduction to the house, giving it's potted history up to the current date, then we spent an hour touring the house. there are some very interesting room cards which give you a number of facts about the rooms and...

Ightham Mote is located about 6 miles from Sevenoaks and 3 from Borough Green in Kent. I defy anyone not to go "WOW" when they first cast eyes on the property!! This is a real gem, (A jewel in the crown of the National Trust) a medieval moated manor house set within it's own grounds (owned and managed by the... More

Beautiful timber framed 700 year old manor house surrounded by a moat. Small but really worth a visit. The gardens are lovely as well with a formal lawn and secret glades.

last time we saw this it had just been gifted to the Trust and we were thrilled with watching the Archeologists, restorers and the woodcarvers. This time it was finished and furnished. WOW. Absolutely beautiful.

Visited early Saturday 5th April & lucky enough to see house and grounds without the crowds. Immaculately kept & maintained, with some of the loveliest NT volunteers I've come across, all knowledgeable, helpful & welcoming - like a big happy family. The house, moat, stable block & setting really beautiful, magical & romantic - quite special. Inner courtyard splendid too... More

We came here last week and loved the house,it really is stunning and well worth a visit. We enjoyed our time here but it is not large and the garden small in comparison to other NT places. I don't think we stayed for more than a couple of hours including a meal. The house is the high point and the... More

we were quite shocked at having to find money to pay for parking as well as the entry price. Is this a thing that all the National trust properties are doing now? I don't really understand the logic of it. The house was fantastic, very interesting, and the gardens were nice but not as big as i expected. toilets were... More

Igtham Mote is a charming medieval moated country house near Sevenoaks. The directions were ‘on the A227’ but in fact it is along a narrow country lane about 2 miles from the main road. We decided to have an early lunch as soon as we got there. It was unexpected to find a restaurant that seemed to be staffed entirely... More

After paying to park and paying again to get in, one could be forgiven for expecting more of this attraction. Regrettably, while the house and gardens are attractive, there is too little here to occupy you for more than an hour. The highlight for me was a guided tour of the gardens, provided by a volunteer. The low point was... More
