Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth Lakeland Tour

The much loved children’s writer Beatrix Potter left an indelible mark on the lakelands she loved.

This private guided tour is an opportunity to see the Lake District through her eyes; as a resident, writer, farmer and champion of local Herdwick sheep.

The visit includes some of the most compelling local scenery, from rivers to bluebell woods to well-known beauty spots. Visit Hill Top farm, once home to Beatrix Potter it featured in the film Miss Potter – the house shines a light on her extraordinary life.

Your private guide will also take you to early 19th century poet’s Wordsworth’s home at Dove Cottage in the charming village of Grasmere. This is where the writer created some of the greatest poetry in the English language.

Your tour continues from Grasmere and Windermere on to Keswick, where you can experience a wonderful boat cruise on Derwentwater, one of the Lake District’s most beautiful stretches of water.
