Beatrix Potter - a private tour

New and very very special for 2012 a private tour centred around the life and times of Beatrix Potter in the Lake District. We get beyond Hill Top to discover the life of Mrs Heelis (aka Beatrix Potter) the farmer and how she lived in her married home at Castle Cottage in Near Sawrey. We join Mandy Marshall, Cumbria Blue Badge Tourist Guide, on a guided tour of Castle Cottage gardens for an entertaining and informative account of how Beatrix Potter lived and the changes she made to a traditional Lakeland farm. 

If you would like a very special and personalised tour experience in the Lake District contact us.

Why Lake District Tours?



Blue Badge Tourist GuideTour the Lake District with a Blue Badge Tourist Guide,
an official, professional tourist guide of the United Kingdom. They are recognised by local tourist bodies throughout the UK, and by Visit Britain as Britain's official tourist guides.

Lake District Tours start with an unfair advantage. The Lake District is one of the most sublimely beautiful places I’ve seen.

Their service is attuned to the scenery. Rather than travelling in big impersonal coaches, it’s as if you’re being driven around by friends who’ve been looking forward to your visit so they can show you, and share with you, the special places they’ve come to love.

After five memorable and varied weeks overseas, we’re telling family and friends how the Lake District tour was the highlight.

 Thanks again – Don & Judy Lipscombe

Lake District Tours Excellent service

“Four days of sublime scenery, most of which we would have missed had we not been guided by Andy.  He was generous with his exceptional local knowledge, was a considerate and careful driver, but mostly was a most enjoyable travelling companion.  Highly recommended.  Tim & Gethyn Prior”
