  • A lovely little property, and nice to see it how it was when Beatrix lived there. The National Trust staff were lovely, and explained that there isn't much written information as it's not a museum, but to ask them any questions you had. I think I would have preferred some information, as sometimes you don't know what to ask about. Opportunity to walk around the garden too. Small cafe in the orchard, where you can sit and have picnics too. Toilets and a gift shop.
  • Wow, what a lovely little house. What makes it more interesting is the fact that it's pretty much how Beatrix Potter left it. The gardens aren't anything special but that's apparently how Beatrix likes them and they still looked nice. Definitely worth a visit especially if they have the fire going
