Batemans – National Trust

This Saturday we went to Batemans in Burwash East Sussex. 

Jacobean House – Was home to the well known author Rudyard Kipling and his family. 

We took the kids to join in with the Rewards and Fairies hunt. In this hunt they get a booklet (Β£1.50 each) in which they have to locate 4 little homes and discover which enchanted creature inhabits them and find a tree spirit. Once complete, take the booklet back to the admissions desk and your child will be rewarded with a little woodland animals finger puppet. 


Entrance fees for he hunt are the same as usual as you have access to the whole of the grounds and house. 

Annoyingly I only realised that we didn’t take a single photo of the beautiful house.. I know, pretty rubbish!

The only down to this day was the cafe/ restaurant being shut for refurbishment at the moment but I knew this before we went as it does state this on their website, they do have a little pop up snack area inside the house. But I had already packed a lunch for us all. Which we ate at the tables outside the cafe, whilst trying to feed and photograph the birds, the Robin came so close but before I manage a decent photo Bunny had scared him off! 


Both kids really enjoyed hunting for the little houses, so much so that when they finally came across one they ended up running straight by them! 


They loved playing pooh sticks on the bridge.


They have been talking non stop of going on our next adventure and bear hunts. Any recommendations of where we could go next would be fantastic!?

Hope you’ve enjoyed your weekend!
