Beatrix Potter Fanatic and I loved it!

It was wonderful to step into the world of Potter and see the animals larger than life! My boyfriend and I both enjoyed it and loved how detailed the exhibits are.

This is really set up for children but I'm a big kid at heart. Loved the garden section with Peter Rabbit's jacket and shoes on the scarecrow.

My wife is a big Beatrix Potter fan and really enjoyed visiting the shop and collecting some presents for the grandchildren. There are little displays of some of the favourite characters from the books near the entrance to the shop.

Never was a Beatrix Potter fan ..enjoyed Enid Blyton more but my children have all enjoyed the revamp of Peter Rabbit... More

We went with 2 young children, they were amazed by the models. Yey are static models but very good ones. There is an air of magic about the place. It's is a short experience but we got a good half hour out of it. It's magical for the kids! Gift shop has a good stock. Although a little pricy! All... More

I forgot how much I loved Beatrix Potter until I came here. A lovely weekend away with my partner and I dragged him here, we both walked through the first door and were mesmerised until we left the gift shop. If I could afford it I would go round and around again. It is a must for any visitor to... More
