We are pleased to be offering a new holiday exploring the life of Beatrix Potter – author, landowner and conservationist. Whilst best known for her fabulous range of children’s books which have certainly stood the test of time, Beatrix Potter was also incredibly influential as a landowner in her beloved Lake District. She was a true conservationist and intent on preserving rural life and tradition. She was a key figure in saving the now iconic Herdwick sheep from extinction – we have a lot to thank her for.
During our stay, we will walk the trails that inspired Beatrix in her writing and learn more about her both as a writer and landowner. We will see some of teh farms she owned and the locations that inspired her illustrations. We will walk around Near Sawrey and perhaps take in Hawkshead and Windermere. We will certainly visit her home at Hill Top Farm with its lovely garden and perhaps The World of Beatrix Potter at Bowness. If you would like to discover more about the woman who created Mrs Tiggy-Winkle and Jemima Puddle-Duck whilst enjoying some classic Lake District walking then do join us on this new adventure.
