A visit to Bateman's in Burwash, East Sussex
I visited Bateman's in Burwash, East Sussex, this week with my mum. Bateman's was the home from 1902 until 1936 of one of the greatest authors of our time Rudyard Kipling. Kipling was a prolific writer who wrote Jungle Book and many other books, short stories and poems. First of all, we went round the house and there were very friendly and helpful National Trust volunteers in each room to answer questions and explain the history of the house and its residents. We had tea and cake in the bright and airy tea room and then followed this with a wander around the gardens, which look beautiful at this time of year as they are so full of colour. For those wanting to do more, there is an estate walk where you can enjoy the stunning Sussex countryside, plus there's a play area and special childrens' activities for the summer holidays too. If you are holidaying in the area, it's well worth a visit - enjoy!
