The garden, estate, tea-room (take-away only), shop, play area, car park and toilets at Bateman's are open. Due to the current restrictions we are unable to open the house and mill. We've introduced advance booking to keep everyone safe and maintain social distancing. To avoid disappointment please book in advance, especially at busier times such as weekends and bank holidays. However, where space is available on weekdays, pre-booking may not always be necessary.
