Shopping at the Oast-house Shop

Our shop is open and our team are looking forward to welcoming you. It is through your purchases that we are able to continue looking after Bateman's for everyone, for ever.

The Riverlands range  

Inspired by rivers and their surrounding landscapes the design of the Riverlands range, pictured above, explores the rivers in our care and the work that is done to keep them healthy, clean and rich in wildlife. The exclusive prints have taken inspiration from rich foliage-lined river banks, natural patterns created by silt and pebbles and the buzzing wildlife found in these tranquil places. Brighten up your home with refreshing and vibrant designs from the collection. With every purchase you’ll help to protect and repair rivers and the wildlife that calls these places home.

Children's toys and books

For children, we have a fun range of toys in our shop including great gifts for spending the pocket money on.

Kipling wrote many stories for his children, Elsie & John, and Macmillan publishers have produced a special range of Kipling storybooks which are available for you to buy to take home to enjoy with your children and grandchildren.
