Bateman's is the last home of the famous English writer R. Kipling. Today the house is owned by the National Trust and is in a perfect condition. The house is a real museum with lots of things that belonged to Kipling and his family. At the entrance you are given a plan of the house with shorts description of the rooms. But in every room there is a National Trust: member, who will gladly tell you lots of interesting things about the things in it. Taking photos is allowed. What I like most, you can touch things and even have a rest in an armchair in the sitting room. Near the house you can see Kipling's Rolls Royce car - a rare exhibit.
The house is surrounded by pretty gardens with a small picturesque pond and plenty of benches to have a rest. Facilities also include a restraunt, a gift shop and toilets.
Admission fee (£9-10 depending on donations) is relatively cheap for such attraction. This place is definitely worth visiting.
