Ightham Mote is an outstanding 14th-century moated manor house set in a secluded valley, with lovely gardens, water features and lakeside and woodland walks.
 
It was the subject of the National Trust's largest ever conservation project, begun in 1989 and completed in 2004. Highlights include a Tudor chapel with a hand painted ceiling and a grade 1 listed dog kennel!
