Rudyard Kipling's Home

Today we had a Team Braithwaite day out to Bateman's which is a Jacobean house and the home of Rudyard Kipling run by the National Trust. Uncle Steve & Rob and Nanny & Grandad Braithwaite joined us for a great day.

Once we had all arrived we visited the tea rooms for refreshments and then ventured into the house. The house was built in 1634 and brought by the Kipling's in 1902. It is a lovely family home and Rudyard's study was bright and wiry with wonderous views across to the garden, it is no wonder he was able to write so much there.

We always like a nice pond and fortunately Bateman's pond was alive with tadpoles, which kept us all occupied for a little while. The mill in the grounds is being renovated, which will look lovely when finished.

We had all taken our own picnics so sat in the grounds enjoying lunch and catching up on everyone's latest travelling exploits. This was only spoilt by a passing shower, but we took the opportunity to visit the shop to keep dry.

All in all another brilliant day out with family and we look forward to the next one.
