  • The attraction isn't very large, but it's everything a fan could ask for. I went last week, with children back at school. So no screaming children to ruin the experience. It was the perfect time to...  more »

  • It was an amazing place especially for children. Some quality time with your family and some good pictures together. You get to do an activity booklet throughout the whole of the attraction. You could also take a picture at the end of the attraction and get it made into a lot of things. Trust me we had a really good time. Recommended a lot.
  • The exhibition is stunning as you would expect with the creative heritage from Beatrix Potter however the cafe is a revelation, with friendly and knowledgeable staff who take so much care with catering for different dietary requirements. They are truly more aware than any establishment I have been in. They are all a credit to the chef who came out to double check the order. I cannot recommend them highly enough. It's incredibly tasty food too. A great experience all round.
  • Lovely family place to visit. Brings back your childhood memories. Friendly staff and lovely little cafe with tasty treats. Only 1 thing was parking, which was quite a walk in the busy season.
  • We came on a very busy Saturday to see the performance and the attraction. Small baby, 3 yo and 6 yo. I am not sure why everyone is raving on about this I mean its OK. The place itself is very small for the crowd of people. The attraction was impressive with a 10mo just was not enjoyable. The performance was nicely sized and had great actors. Good location and easy to find in Windermere. Just needs to manage the crowd or make it bigger.
  • What an incredible experience! Worth every penny. My partner and I were enthralled with the quality of the exhibition. So much care has been given to each and every detail that it brought the exhibits to life. This will undoubtedly be a magical experience for little children. It was both informative and beautifully presented. Highly recommended whether you are a Beatrix Potter fan or not.
