The attraction isn’t the only Beatrix Potter themed venue in Windermere though! Along with the gift shop in the town centre, you can also visit Beatrix Potter’s 17th-century farmhouse ‘Hill Top House’, ran by the National Trust.

To get there without a car you will need to board the short ferry across the stunning Windermere lake and enjoy the two-mile hike to Hill Top House.

Once there, you can imagine Beatrix writing her stories in the quaint English cottage-garden and follow in the footsteps, paws and claws of her favourite characters. Enjoy the weekend-long Cadbury egg hunt as you follow the clues around the famous garden!

Whichever attraction you visit, or even if you don’t visit any, Windermere is still a beautiful part of the Lake District and boasts stunning walks, views and a variety of accommodation from cosy cottages to campsites and Bed ’n’ Breakfasts. It’s the perfect family fun destination if you’re hopping mad about Easter.
