Easter holidays at Bateman's

This article relates to the Easter Holidays in 2018. Details will be updated early in 2019 for our Easter 2019 offer. The house, gardens and wider estate at Bateman's are teeming with new life at this time of year. It's the perfect time to get the family out and about.

Enjoy a springtime visit

This spring discover some of the magic of this family home that captivated Rudyard Kipling and his wife, Carrie. Nestling in the beautiful Sussex countryside with the gentle flow of the River Dudwell through its grounds, this house was beloved by Kipling and his family.

Wander through the rooms in the house, freshened after our winter conservation work or take a stroll through the gardens and see the beautiful colours of the spring flowers. For our more energetic visitors there are several estate walks where you can stride out and explore a bit further afield.
