Ightham Mote | Days Out With The National Trust


Despite the miserable Winter weather we still managed to make it to another National Trust property this weekend! Ightham Mote is a 14th Century moated manor house in the heart of Kent. Built nearly 700 years ago it's full of history, walks and beautiful sites to see. Unfortunately as it was raining so much a lot of the walks were closed, as was the house (it's completely closed in January and February).

Indiana had an absolute whale of a time regardless though. She's really into puddle jumping and exploring at the moment, so these places are the perfect location to go! She can literally just run around to her hearts content, without us worrying that she's going to run off or go somewhere she's not supposed to.

The rain didn't stop us having fun either. Parker was snuggly in his pushchair, with the rain cover and footmuff, and we all had coats on. At one point i think we were the only people wandering around in the rain!

Unfortunately I didn't manage to get many decent pictures this time. Not only did we not want to get the cameras wet, but Indiana was having far too much fun exploring to pose haha. I'm excited to go back when it's warmer (and maybe a bit less wet) to explore even more though!

We did also vlog our day out so definitely make sure to head over to my YouTube channel to see a bit more of the place! Including lots of puddle jumping... not just from Indiana either!

When we thought it was time to dry off we headed to the cafe for lunch. Indiana had a little kiddy lunch box which included a sandwich (she chose cheese over ham), raisins, a shortbread biscuit, juice (she chose apple over orange) and some stickers - all for £3.95 which we thought was a really good price. I love finding children's meals that don't include chocolate too; so this was a winner in my eyes!

Jack opted for a sausage bap and I had a jacket potato with beans and cheese. Both were very yummy and great portion sizes. Jack's sausages were gigantic, but luckily Indiana was on hand to help him haha. Again these were reasonable prices - especially considering for a little bit less you could get a sandwich on it's own!
