More About This Title Rudyard Kipling at Bateman's


Rudyard Kipling loved Bateman’s. It was his personal paradise, where he wrote some of his most famous works and enjoyed quiet family life free from the demands of fame. The atmospheric 17th-century house has changed little since his time and nestles modestly in the wooded landscape of the Sussex Weald. This guidebook uncovers the lives of the Kiplings and their staff at Bateman's.
