“Beatrix Fans”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

When we went, the exhibition was the hand written and illustrated version of Peter Rabbit. The pages lined the walls as you went through the rooms. I would have liked to have spent more time there, but it was stuffy and humid because of the rain, which made it uncomfortable inside.

“interesting place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

As someone who doesn't remember his Beatrix Potter stories very well, this was an eye opener. A very interesting Gallery and upstairs area. Our five year old loved the models and dioramas. Overall a neat experience, especially the balcony garden. Very interesting.

“Great story's given life.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

This is an amazing old building full of character and charm. The National Trust have a large collection of Beatrix Potter's original art work, helping bring the life of the artist to life. I took my 3 children and the best part if our visit was how great all the staff were with them. They talked and explained the stories in a fascinating manner while giving the children little fun challenges to further engage them. We all really enjoyed our visit to this hidden gem, thank you to the staff for being so friendly and welcoming.
