This 17thC Sussex Ironmaster's house, built in a Wealden valley, was the home of writer Rudyard Kipling from 1902 to 1936. Rooms used by Kipling can be seen, including his study which is exactly as it was when he wrote Puck of Pooks Hill and other books and poems here. Kipling's Rolls Royce car is also on display. At the end of the wild garden is a watermill and reputedly one of the worlds oldest working water-driven turbines. Events take place throughout the year.

Three waymarked walks of various lengths are available on the estate and families can discover a natural play area in a secluded glen by the car park.
