Visit this outstanding 14th-century moated manor house, it is a fascinating place with lots to see and do. The modest ambition of Ightham Mote's owners are the reason that the house has survived. The original builder, although unknown, was clearly someone of wealth. The rest were squires, sheriffs, MPs, even courtiers, but they never aspired to higher office or lavish entertainment, and were mostly indifferent to changes in fashion.
