  • Everything about the visit was wonderful: the NT volunteers were welcoming and knowledgable; the vegetable patch was delightful; the gardens were peaceful with fabulous borders; and the house itself.....  more »
  • An interesting visit and the staff were friendly and helpful as usual, however we felt the standard of written information about the house and Beatrice Potter herself was not at the normal high...  more »
  • Oh dear disappointing. Was looking forward to this visit and felt extremely let down. Car parking is a nightmare a small car park that is supposed to be for the visit and yet people were clearly...  more »
  • Parking is separate to the garden and house due to CoVid19. Seems to be plenty of space and is free. Small and homely garden, so was a quick trip for us. Joe's outdoor cafe is cool and comfortable (pic attached). The shop had so many interesting and fun things to buy, difficult to choose. It would be nice to return once the house is open for viewing.
  • We visited on a rainy day and despite the weather, it was stunning and even more magical due to lack of visitors. Highly inspirational and beautiful place. Well worth the trip.
  • I love the house and garden, its been a few years since my last visit and the only changes seem to be the addition of the coffee pop up in the orchard. It's a relaxed hour ambling through the grounds, a shame the house is now closed off, but still worth a visit on a nice day.
  • Pretty but only garden is open which is not very well maintained, no nice flowers. There could be more to experience. The house looks lovely.
  • YOU HAVE A VAN SELLING CAKE IN YOUR GARDEN BEATRICE... dunno if you know about this but might wanna sort it out, Pottered round the veg patch. Corona means you have to book, don't be late... signs teach you how to meditate. Robin friendliness unmatched.
