Festivals & Heritage

Set in the wooded landscape of the Sussex Weald, this 17th-century house, with its mullioned windows and oak beams, provided a much needed sanctuary to world-famous writer, Rudyard Kipling. He wrote some of his finest works at the house including: "If", "The Glory of the Garden", and the house's setting and the wider local area features in many of his stories in “Puck of Pook's Hill.” Today the house remains just as he left it, decorated to reflect the author's exotic oriental tastes. Visitors can see original illustrations for The Jungle Book, drawn by Detmold brothers, walk through the beautiful gardens down to the River Dudwell and visit the working water mill. See Kipling's 1928 Phantom 1 Rolls-Royce, which has been preserved. Why not pick up some refreshments at the Tea Rooms?
