  • Two adults visiting and we loved it. Not massive and can be done in 45 mins but was informative and interesting. The food in the cafe was lovely and good portion sizes. Worth a visit

  • Entrance fee wasn't bad at £9 for an adult, and what was there was lovely. Beautiful scenes and you really felt almost immersed in the stories with the characters. I just felt like when I came to the end that it was a pretty short visit, and I did stop and look at everything. There could have been loads more about Beatrix's life, the books and characters to fill the same space over again.
  • A really sweet attraction. Lot's of information and I recommend doing the children's activity booklet as it points out things that might have been missed. My children enjoyed it but I actually think I liked it more! The detail and care gone into the scenes is just lovely.
  • Great attraction, at a decent price. Good for young children, they will get the most out of it if they are familiar with the stories and characters. Gift shop is absolutely extortionate prices, hussle the kids through it fast if you can. There is a cafe but we didn't try it, so don't know what it's like. Toilets were decent with baby change. Not pushchair friendly, but there is a parking system for them at the front. Overall would recommend for families with children up to 7 or 8.
  • Good experience for the kids. They loved spending time with all things Peter rabbit. If you are around Lake District and are looking for something to do with the kids indoors, this is a good place. We spent a good couple of hours and both our kids 10 and 5 enjoyed it. The restaurant also serves some good cakes.
  • Good part of Windermere.. definitely would book it as part of your day as it doesn't take long to get around.. The afternoon tea with Peter Rabbit wasn't quite what it says on the tin. Somebody in a costume for 15 minutes at the front for photos then goes. The kids who was with us had been told it was Peter Rabbit's birthday so thought they would of been asked to sing happy birthday or something at least, the staff was really friendly and where you eat is nice. The food was a couple of tuna, ham, egg mayo and cheese quarter sandwiches. Some big pieces of cake, 2 buns and 3 scones some sausage rolls and a small bowl of crisps. Would I do it again? The Beatrix Potter world definitely The meal probably not.
