Serene Ightham Mote is a house that belongs to the ages. Set in beautiful Kentish countryside, it is the most complete medieval moated manor house in England, but it is a miracle that it has survived at all.

The inspiration behind a classic Henry James ghost tale, and painted by John Singer Sargent and Sir Winston Churchill, this is the story of a place of quirky charm. It is also the story of an American’s love affair with the quintessentially English property that he helped to save, and of the National Trust’s fifteen-year-long conservation project that has safeguarded Ightham Mote for future generations.

5 stars The new Ightam Mote guidebook is another national trust winner! Written by

Like many before it, it is perfect in its breadth and clarity for an enthusiastic amateur historian such as myself and will be an excellent way to revisit this site, so to speak, in he future without leaving home

1 stars All gloss and no substance Written by

Yet another poor guidebook from the National Trust. For the last 5+ years the guidebooks have been dumbed down to contain as little information as possible for the informed visitor. Gervase Jackson-Stops would be turning in his grave to see how standards have slipped. Avoid and visit your local charity shop for an older version.
