Ightham Mote is a rare surviving example of a moated medieval manor house dating from the early part of the 14th-century with important later additions and alterations.The earliest building phase included the Great Hall Crypt Old Chapel and two Solars.
The builder of Ightham Mote is as yet unknown but the first known owner was Sir Thomas Cawne (c1360-1374).A series of owners have each made an impact to varying degrees upon both the interior and exterior of the house.Most notable of these was Edward Haut (1487-1519) who enclosed the Courtyard and constructed the cottage range.
A Grade I listed building and in part a Scheduled Ancient Monument Ightham Mote is according to Pevsner 'the most complete small medieval manor house in the country' and provides a remarkable picture of architectural development over more than five centuries.

Excellent pictures of a lovely peaceful place in the South East so close of London.
We have spent many happy moments exploring Ightham Mote. It belongs to the National Trust of which we are members for over twenty years. It is one of life's great pleasures to visit a NT property.
