    I think this is the biggest takeaway from my short trip to Lake District! Telly is so knowledgeable ! I had very little idea about the Beatrix Potter before the trip, but I was so intrigued and inspired by herself and her life, so a big thank you to Telly and Sandra! I am so glad and so thankful that I booked this tour with you!

    An absolutely beautiful and fun tour. The best we have ever done ! The tour guides were so kind and so knowledgeable! We were taken all around several points of interest and there was never a dull moment. We were shown artefacts and stopped off at some of the most beautiful peaks. Even on a rainy day, we would do it all again. Thank you so much

    Really informative and fun tour with Tim. It was great to learn more about Beatrix Potter and her impact on the area. He referenced the illustrations from her books which really brought things to life. Each drop-off gave you just about the right amount of time to see things. We throughly enjoyed visiting the beautiful Hill Top and the village of Hawkshead in particular. Tim was a friendly and knowledgable guide.
    icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
    Tim is a very good guide and has spent a long time getting the timings just right for our Beatrix Potter Tours. Many of our guests say that the illustrations seem to come alive when you actually see the locations and we are delighted that you feel this too. Hawkshead is a lovely village, like so many around here so we hope that you will come back and visit the lakes again to see some more.

    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!

    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
    Carol_T
    , 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.
