Bateman’s was home to author Rudyard Kipling from 1902 to his death in 1936. His wife left the house to the National Trust on her death in 1939, and it has since been opened to the public. The house and grounds with working watermill are beautiful and very tranquil. As you walk around inside the house each room has various artefacts relating to Kipling including his Rolls Royce. A full programme of events includes family fun days, storytelling, re-enactment weekends, garden and countryside walks, virtual tour of watermill and first floor of house, children’s quizzes/trails. Dogs on leads and only in car park, dog crèche
