Ightham Moat & Bluebells

Ightham Moat & Bluebells

The bluebells in Scathes Wood on the Ightham Mote Estate are a sight not to be missed after the winter season. The bluebells provide a beautiful sea of blue and also provide a source of nectar for the insects.

Ightham Mote Manor House is a medieval moated house and is a grade 1 listed building.

If you stand in the middle of the courtyard youcan look around and trace the different buildings of the house.  If you look carefully you will notice that the cobbles have been laid out in a pattern.


You will be amazed at the carpet of sapphire blue flowers that stretch out before you shaded under the ancient trees.  The National Trust are proud to be an important organisation for bluebell conservation.

The beautiful spread of bluebells are an irresistable sight in spring to most of us, but please take care when looking for that special photo as the bluebells are very fragile.

They are so fragile that once trodden on they are not able to produce seeds.

If we stick to the paths we will be able to enjoy these gorgeous bluebells for many years to come.
