Delightful & informative

Thanks for such a special introduction to the Windermere area and especially Beatrix Potter’s home & vast property contribution to the National Trust. The couple that hosted me were vastly experienced and informative making it very special. I hope to request them on a future visit. Memorable !!
Potter and Wordsworth in two delightful days!
, Oct 2018
We are three experienced travelers who have taken many tours but the two tours we took with Gillian and Tim exceeded our expectations. Gillian was incredibly knowledgeable about the lives of both Wordsworth and Potter and she enhanced her talks with information about other literary figures, the local architecture and the local history. Tim, who was our driver, also contributed to the conversations with additional knowledge. Both Gillian and Tim were extremely personable and made us fill welcomed in the area.

Phenomenal Tour with Wonderful Guide and Driver
, Jul 2018
I think this might be the best tour I have ever been on ... and I use Viator tours whenever I am in a new place. The Beatrix Potter tour was amazing--the tour went to the usual places -- Hilltop Farm and surrounding villages, but, the tour was anything but usual-because the tour guide was so knowledgeable and had a more holistic view--historic, architectural, agricultural, art, everyday life and more types of information that gave the life of BP and her work a rich and varied tapestry. The knowledge of the guide and the driver spanned eons. We also stopped to capture some stunning Lake District views! Could not have been better--just wonderful. I did pay the extra to go in Hilltop and it is well worth the cost and the time because the BP books just jump off of the pages when you see the interiors which are reflected in some of the books. But, if you don't, it is still amazing as the grounds are stunningly pretty. I loved this morning daytrip--the weather was so cool and crisp in the morning -- which was great because I visited during the heatwave. This tour made my short stay in the area a smashing success!!!!

We love to take visitors to Hill Top and other places that were important to Beatrix Potter. It is a fantastic place to visit as you discovered and we spend a lot of time researching the life of Beatrix Potter to bring her story to life.
