Ightham Mote

Ightham Mote was built approximately 700 years ago. It has been owned by Medieval knights, courtiers to Henry VIII and high society Victorians. The house is surrounded by peaceful gardens with an orchard, water features, lakes and woodland walks. It was donated to the National Trust in 1985.


The house is reputedly haunted by the ghost of a female, whom some have suggested is Dame Dorothy Selby.
