Had a nice day out and all the staff were helpful and friendly, however I have never been served by a most rude and condescending individual. He was belittling and should not have been serving customers, I overheard other people talking about him. If you want people to recommend others to visit and enjoy a truly wonderful day, then this...

Gardens are interesting and well kept. There is a lovely wooded play area for children by a babbling brook. A good National Trust shop and excellent restaurant serving lovely food. The house itself is really interesting and bigger than it first appears. Lots to see inside and the huge dog kennel in the courtyard is always popular with little children... More

as National Trust members we often visit their properties and Ightham Mote is one of our favourites to visit when we have friends or family staying. It's easily manageable for young children and elderly. highly recommend it.

Lovely house and grounds. Travelling with elderly mother in law so could not climb the steep hill, so we used the goof cart to make the shirt journey up & down the hill. The staff were very accommodating. Lunch at the cafe was delicious. The restaurant was packed, so get there early in Summer!

We have driven past this place a fair few times and we are now so glad we actually stopped and went around this place. It is a beautiful place to walk around and relax in. It has been very well kept and as there weren't very many people at the time we were there it made it even more peaceful.... More

My husband and I have lived in Kent all of our lives but had never been here. We were lucky enough to just catch the last tour of the day. It was very informative and well worth the time. We had Ted who was great. Can't wait to return when the season changes.

Have been to Ightham Mote and number of times over the last year and have found it to be very good with a range of cake as well as lunches. Good parking

Visited in winter when the upper floors are closed :( Such a wonderful place to visit, small and accessible enough to see everything, large enough not to be confined. Beautiful wood carving and cobble stones in the courtyard and do not forget the doghouse!
