|Kennel at Ightham Mote|
But my favorite thing at Ightham Mote is the charming Victorian dog kennel in the courtyard, which is doubtless the only doghouse in Britain that is a Grade I listed structure. It was built for Dido, a St. Bernard dog - who was clearly a very lucky and sophisticated dog.
Visiting places like Ightham Mote and Battle Abbey are a great way to spend school holidays because it is one of the most enjoyable ways to learn a little history - while having a relaxing holiday at the same time.That is multi-tasking at its best, I think. And checking out travel sites is an easy way to plan a perfect school holiday in England. I am sure that Dido, that most stylish of creatures, would approve of this.
