Visited here with some friends and we all had a brilliant time. It's not that big inside but the attraction is great and there is lots to see and do for people of all ages.
Some areas if the museum could do with some attention and the shop is an overpriced tourist trap but still worth it.
The tea rooms are great with beautiful cakes and sandwiches although again a bit pricey.
Well worth a visit if you have children, or like my friends and I are just fans if Beatrix Potter and want to be young again for a few hours!!

We found this place completely randomly and we were under big big big impression. Worth spending any money to see this Beatrix Potters World. Even if you are not a big fan or never heard of her - you must visit this place

Tucked away down a winding road, a little hard t find but well worth the effort. The gardens are lovely and so is the house.

Lovely! Brought back lovely memories of our youngest as he loved Peter Rabbit. Had a lovely high tea although quite expensive. Can't see how this attraction is for children though, unless you have really quiet well behaved ones that will listen and sit painting for entertainment!

Not very big but enjoyed the life story of Miss Potter a lady with a passion for the countryside.
Thought shop goods were expensive
