MOATED MANOR

Kent Life - - Town Life: Sevenoaks -

Ightham Mote dates back nearly 700 years. A me­dieval moated manor house, it was owned by a suc­ces­sion of no­table fam­i­lies and at one point rented out to a wealthy Amer­i­can, who was vis­ited by many of the artists and writ­ers of the Vic­to­rian Aes­thetic Move­ment, in­clud­ing John Singer Sar­gent. Now owned by the Na­tional Trust, the es­tate is great for a win­try walk and has a café and shop.
