While staying in Windermere we noticed loads of Chinese visitors wondering the streets and upon asking our host at the hotel, Alan explained that this was must do visit as Beatrix Potter books are used to teach English in China. Well, we just... More

Family spent the entries afternoon, did the walk around and then watched the show followed by a cream tea. They enjoyed the entire experience and my grand daughter finished off by making her own figurine/painting. Excellent way to spend a wet day in the lakes

Only visited the gift shop and cafe. Service in both was excellent. The cafe was clean and welcoming with a good choice of food and lovely cakes. We had a morning coffee and returned later in the day for lunch. The portions were an excellent size and the salad I had was sourced from their own kitchen gardens. The cakes... More

Visited this attraction the other day and did not disappoint - lovely to find out about Beatrix Potter and see all the lovely characters she brought to life. Very reasonably priced. The only issue I found was the gift shop had no structure and when coach trips arrive they totally swamp the shop. There were staff who could have been... More

Very nice little attraction to go and visit. Not a huge place but an enjoyable way to spend an hour or so taking in the lovely settings and quaint, intricate models of the woodland creatures. Gift shop with Beatrix Potter themed products.

We ate lunch in the cafe first, the food choices and the decor were well suited to the Beatrix Potter stories and was a great was to start the afternoon at the attraction.
