What's on

The rose garden and pond at Bateman’s, East Sussex

Summer events 

Enjoy a hunt for some of The Jungle Book characters who've escaped into the garden this summer. The garden is blooming, the meadows are awash with wild flowers and the house is bathed in sunshine. Discover this idyllic piece of Sussex that provided Kipling with such inspiration.

History

Kipling's time and earlier 

Most notable as the home of world famous author and poet, Rudyard Kipling, Bateman's history dates back further and is connected, we think, to the iron industry.
