Beatrix Potter’s Lakeland Holiday
This amazing break is available for stays between 1st April 2017 and 30th September 2017, please book early to avoid disappointment.
Our two night break is the perfect way for fans of the beloved children’s author Beatrix Potter to experience the Lake District life and sights that inspired her.
The two night break includes entry to The World Of Beatrix Potter, the ultimate attraction for fans. After viewing a short film introducing visitors to the author, her stories and illustrations, you will then move through to the main exhibition where you will then experience all the sights, sounds and smells of the Potter books. All your favourite characters are there including Benjamin Bunny, Mrs Tiggy-Winkle, Squirrel Nutkin, Jemima Puddle-duck and, of course, Peter Rabbit.
You can also take a cruise on Lake Windermere and see for yourself the stunning scenery that inspired Miss Potter’s famous illustrations. Entrance to The World of Beatrix Potter and the cruise with Windermere Lake Cruises is included in your break price as is a fantastic half day Beatrix Potter tour with Mountain Goat.
Mountain Goat will collect you from the hotel at Lunchtime giving you ample opportunity for a quick dip in our pool after breakfast before you head out for the afternoon in a luxurious 16 seated Mercedes sprinter mini coach, fully equipped with air conditioning, high view seats and windows giving the perfect viewpoint to look over those notorious high Lakeland stone walls. Your tour includes a visit to Hawkshead village, Tarn Hows beauty spot and of course Hilltop farm and gardens, the former home of Beatrix. Hilltop is a national trust property and while entry to the house is not included in the price, there is sufficient time to add this on at an extra cost, unless of course you are a national trust member in which case you can visit at no extra cost. Hilltop is a 17th century farmhouse that can only be described as a time capsule of her life. Full of her favourite things it looks simply as if Beatrix has popped out for a walk.
After all this adventure why not come back to the hotel for a cream tea before freshening up and changing for dinner.
This great value package includes 2 nights dinner, bed and breakfast at the Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel, the only 4 star hotel in the world that is a former house owned by Beatrix. The package runs from March to September inclusive and must be booked at least 3 days prior to arrival to guarantee a seat with mountain goat. Free parking is available at the hotel, along with a charging point for electric cars which is free to use, we can also arrange return transfers from Windermere rail station to the hotel.
