“Experience complete”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Having been to Hill Top we felt that this completed our Beatrix Potter experience. I had no idea she was such an interesting person and had done so much to help conserve parts of the Lake district, having owned so many farms and land and leaving so much to the National Trust. The art work was so detailed and it was fascinating looking at the originals. The building was quaint and the stair treads worn by years of feet. I could imagine Beatrix meeting her husband there. The staff were very friendly and welcoming.

“Very charming”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

The village has become a bit of a Beatrice Potter Disney experience with shops galore but this little museum was a very nice experience.

“Lovely”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

We went with our national trust membership with kids 7 and 5 who wernt that into the beatrix potter books so was not expecting to stop long byt they loved it! There was a little trail for them and they could find a little pig in each room to write down his name. This allowed us grown ups to look at the lovely displays. the building and setting was gorgeous.- lovely way to pass an hour

“Beatrix Fans”
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.
