Bluebell and wildflower walk

Across the estate there is a wealth of spring flowers to be seen. With longer days and the promise of better weather it's a great time to get out and about.


Take a walk through the Sussex countryside

On Friday 27 April join one of our rangers and explore the estate at this most beautiful time of the year. Discover the magic of spring as you follow the paths and cross fields through Rudyard Kipling's little bit of England.

Our wardens are proud of their knowledge of the gardens and estate at Bateman's and you'll be guided to the best places for bluebells and the many other spring flowers that grace the grounds at this time of the year.

We recommend that you wear sturdy walking boots/shoes or wellies and suitable clothing as the walk will go ahead in most weather conditions. The walk will be at a leisurely pace with time to stop and admire the views and talk with our ranger.

The route is varied and contains a number of stiles, so please consider this when booking. Some paths and low lying areas can be very muddy after rain.

The two-hour walk starts from our visitor reception at 10.30am and will conclude with a cup of tea in our Mulberry tea room. Don't forget your camera if you want to capture the beauty of this morning.
