Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Hill Top, Beatrix Potter's House, Main St Near Sawrey, Hawkshead, Ambleside LA22 0LF England

Once the home of children's author and illustrator Beatrix Potter. This 17th-century house in Near Sawrey, Hawkshead was where her many children’s books were brought to life. It’s traditional stone walls and slate roof are typical of the area and became a Grade II listed building. Beatrix left the house and much of her other buildings and land to the National Trust in her will. Hill Top now serves as an insight into her life in the Lake District.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: The Armitt: Museum, Gallery, Library, Rydal Road, Ambleside LA22 9BL England

Beatrix Potter Gallery is currently Closed for renovations. This attraction is replaced with a visit to the Armitt Library and Gallery, Ambleside.

Beatrix Potter was one of the most iconic and influential figures of the Lake District and an early member of The Armitt. She was a major benefactor, and on her death in 1943, she bequeathed to us her exquisite botanical drawings and watercolors, together with her personal first edition copies of her ‘little’ books. This archive together with material from the National Trust Archive, the Frederic Warne Archive, and the Beatrix Potter Society, provides a wealth of information on Beatrix.

Duration: 40 minutes

Stop At: Tarn Hows, Lake District National Park, Coniston LA21 8AQ England

A beauty spot that must not be missed, yet is not entirely typical of the local landscape, for the tarn is partly artificial, being three tarns joined together in the 19th Century and most of the trees surrounding it are conifers. The attraction is its sheer beauty, surrounded by thick woodland, and views towards Wetherlam, the Helvellyn range and the Langdale Pikes.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Wray Castle, Low Wray, Ambleside LA22 0JA England

The castle was the first place Beatrix Potter stayed in the Lake District, when she was just sixteen. It was here she discovered the Lakes countryside and preserving it for future generations became a lifelong passion. This is not a real castle, but a private house built in 1840 in the style of the Gothic Revival. Now owned by the National Trust its impressive stature uncovers the hidden mysteries of the landscaped grounds and the picturesque tradition which the Lake District is so famous for.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Moss Eccles Tarn, Ambleside England

This is where Beatrix Potter spent time painting, whilst her husband fished. Enjoy the sights and sounds of traditional Lakeland, taking in some of its awesome landscapes.

Our driver got us around to the Beatrix Potter sites and wax very knowledgeable. He was skilled at driving on very narrow roads. He pulled right up to the site so there was very little walking involved.

Simon did a wonderful job of helping us to prioritize our time and get our wishes fulfilled. The weather was cooperative - the scenery was brilliant. Hill Top did not disappoint.
