Beatrix Potter’s Lake District Holiday

Beatrix Potter’s Lake District Holiday

Now available to book for your 2021 holiday!

The Original Beatrix Potter Experience Package.

Back for the 12th year, our popular Beatrix Potter's Experience package is a great way to enjoy your Lakeland holiday.

This amazing break is available for stays between 1st April 2021 and 30th September 2021, please book early to avoid disappointment. 

Our two-night break is the perfect way for fans of the beloved children’s author Beatrix Potter to experience the Lake District life and sights that inspired her.

This break includes entry to The World Of Beatrix Potter, the ultimate attraction for fans. After viewing a short film introducing visitors to the author, her stories, and illustrations, you will then move through to the main exhibition where you will then experience all the sights, sounds and smells of the Potter books. All your favourite characters are there including Benjamin Bunny, Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle, Squirrel Nutkin, Jemima Puddle-duck, and, of course, Peter Rabbit.

You can also take a cruise on Lake Windermere and see for yourself the stunning scenery that inspired Miss Potter’s famous illustrations. Entrance to The World of Beatrix Potter and the cruise with Windermere Lake Cruises is included in your break price as is a fantastic half day Beatrix Potter tour with Mountain Goat.

Mountain Goat will collect you from the hotel at Lunchtime giving you ample opportunity to relax after breakfast before you head out for the afternoon in a luxurious 16 seated Mercedes sprinter mini-coach, fully equipped with air conditioning, high view seats and large windows giving the perfect viewpoint to look over those notorious high Lakeland stone walls. Your tour includes a visit to Hawkshead village, Tarn Hows beauty spot, and of course Hilltop farm and gardens, the former home of Beatrix. Hilltop is a national trust property and while entry to the house is not included in the price, there is sufficient time to add this on at an extra cost, unless of course, you are a national trust member in which case you can visit at no extra cost. Hilltop is a 17th-century farmhouse that can only be described as a time capsule of her life. Full of her favourite things it looks simply as if Beatrix has popped out for a walk.


After all this adventure why not come back to the hotel for a cream tea before freshening up and changing for dinner.

This great value package includes 2 nights of dinner, bed, and breakfast at Lindeth Howe Hotel, the only 4-star hotel in the world that is a former house owned by Beatrix.

Lindeth Howe is only a 30-minute drive from the M6 junction 36. The drive along the A591 is a beautiful one and takes in some lovely sights along the way, why not stop off at Staveley village on the way? There is a lovely community shop in the retail area where Hawkshead brewery is based that sells homemade jams, spreads, and crafts by local people (There is one lady that sells her green tomato chutney – heaven!!)

When you are planning your route to the hotel, please use the phrase ‘Longtail Hill’ in your SatNav as not all route guidance systems recognise the postcode as belonging to the hotel.

If you require any assistance in finding us, please just call us and we will happily talk you through it.

While all dietary requirements and allergies are catered for, it is important that you inform us about this at the time of booking so Chef can ensure he briefs his kitchen team appropriately.

COVID-19 Procedures for the hotel

We have put in place new procedures to ensure the safety of you, our guests and of our team, we are requesting that you book a time for breakfast and dinner as we have reduced the number of tables in the public areas to ensure we have sufficient space in between the tables for social distancing regulations. 

We have changed our check-in time from 3 pm to 4 pm to ensure we have more time to deep clean the rooms, we are 'fogging' the rooms between guest use, the fogging machine covers the room in a fine droplet disinfectant that ensures the room is fully sanitised between guests.

We are cleaning all high touch points every hour and we have lots of sanitiser stations available for staff and guest use around the hotel.

We have adapted our facemask policy so it is in line with the current guidance. It is our guest's choice if they wish to wear a facemask and as it is with everyone else, we have left it to our team members to make their own informed choice. The team will respect your wishes and we politely request that you respect theirs.
