Beatrix Potter Farmhouse

Left to the National Trust in 1943 after her passing, Beatrix Potter Farmhouse is the former home of the famous English writer and illustrator Beatrix Potter. Everything in the house remains as it did when she resided here and, as such, visitors can step back in time to the late 20th century.


Visitors can explore the house, located in Near Sawrey, where Jemima Puddleduck, Squirrel Nutkin and Peter Rabbit were created and developed. The cottage is also surrounded by beautiful countryside, much of which was an inspiration for her illustrations.


Beatrix Potter Farmhouse is one of the Lake Districts biggest attractions and, as such, it’s always busy so prepare to queue outside, especially in summer. The National Trust run a timed ticketed entry to avoid overcrowding and tickets are £10.40 per adult, £5.20 per child and £26 for a family pass.
