A wedding reception at Batemans

Bateman’s is an idyllic spot, much loved by Rudyard Kipling all his life. Nestled in a shallow valley, the house and garden were a joy and an inspiration to him, from the formal lawns and clipped yew hedges to the romantic meadow with the gently meandering river flowing through it.
