Serene Ightham Mote is a house that belongs to the ages. Set in beautiful Kentish countryside, it is the most complete medieval moated manor house in England, but it is a miracle that it has survived at all. The inspiration behind a classic Henry James ghost tale, and painted by John Singer Sargent and Sir Winston Churchill, this is the story of a place of quirky charm. It is also the story of an Americans love affair with the quintessentially English property that he helped to save, and of the National Trusts fifteen-year-long conservation project that has safeguarded Ightham Mote for future generations.
