Bateman’s: The home of Rudyard Kipling

In May this year we had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to vis­it (anoth­er) writer’s home about 20 miles from daugh­ter Joan­ne’s home town of Tun­bridge Wells in South East Eng­land.  It’s yet anoth­er Nation­al Trust prop­er­ty and the for­mer home of the famous writer, Rud­yard Kipling. 

The link above takes you to the Wikipedia entry for Rud­yard Kipling where it can be seen he was born in India and moved to the UK when he was 5 years old.  He always had a love of India and wrote sev­er­al books and poems about the country.

Bate­man’s is an old sand­stone house, sur­round­ed by gar­dens, farm­land and rolling coun­try­side.  An amaz­ing place to be a cre­ative writer.  In the pho­tos below you can see his study; an amaz­ing­ly relax­ing place to be cre­ative I would have thought.  It also helps that he had loads of cash😄
