Etchingham is a village in East Sussex and located on the way to Burwash and Bateman’s.

A bronze statue of Rudyard Kipling is unveiled in Burwash. It shows him seated on a bench with a book called “Just so”. This statue celebrates the work of Kipling and also encourages more visitors of Bateman’s to come into the wonderful village of Burwash itself.

Bateman’s is a beautiful old sandstone house surrounded by Sussex countryside. It was bought by Rudyard Kipling and his wife who fell in love with the house at first sight, it became a family home.

The rooms are much as he left them: artifacts from his Eastern adventures, a book lined study, his Nobel prize certificate for literature, a phonograph playing music.

An amazing garden with an orchard, herb garden, pond and wildflower meadow surrounds the house.
