We are so pleased to have been able to show you some of the world of Beatrix Potter. She was an amazing woman and her story is so important to the Lakes and its conservation.

We really enjoyed showing you some of the world of William Wordsworth and his fellow poets. It is really important to us that our guests don't feel rushed and that they get sufficient time to enjoy the stops we make and the trip itself.
