About Bateman's

Bateman's was built in 1634. From 1902 until 1936 it became the home of Rudyard Kipling and is preserved as it was when he lived there. The house perfectly epitomises Kipling's own description of his home and its surroundings exactly as he himself had immortalised them in his Puck of Pook's Hill.

Today, this wonderful property, full of the flavour of Kipling, his life and times, is in the care of the National Trust. Bateman's occupies the most picturesque setting, its mellow walls forming a splendid backdrop for delightful gardens running down to the gurgling River Dudwell, where visitors can see a working water-mill.

Kipling's gleaming Phantom I Rolls Royce circa 1928 is available to view, along with other extraordinary memorabilia including original illustrations for the Jungle Book as drawn by Detmold brothers.

Visitors to the house have access to the garden, there is a tea-room and a shop.

Bateman' is open to public view from March until the end of October, with both the garden and tea-room remaining open until December.
