The wonderful world of Beatrix Potter


This week we were sent a truly surprising and wonderful gift that took me back to my childhood.

One of our Facebook friends sent my family a Peter Rabbit teddy bear. My little ones are in love with it and I had a lovely feeling of nostalgia. I remember sitting up in bed with my parents while they read me the Tale of Peter Rabbit, it’s still one of my favourite stories.

If you fancy taking a trip back in time, why not take your family to The World of Beatrix Potter in Bowness-On-Windermere.

It’s great fun and the Peter Rabbit Garden really brings the drawings and illustrations from her famous books to life. There are lots of things to do at this attraction and a delicious teashop aswell.

We have some lovely self-catering holiday cottages in Bowness-On-Windermere so after a day of visiting the Beatrix Potter attraction, you can return to one of our cosy properties and relax in front of an open fire.

Our cottages are also near Windermere Lake, the largest natural lake in England and one of the most beautiful too!
