The World of Beatrix Potter (Cumbria) Reviews
Description:Visitor attraction in Bowness on Windermere with life zize models of Beatrix Potter characters.
Newest Review: ... you can enjoy a recreation of the cottage and kitchen gardens of the Peter Rabbit Tales. This is my absolute favourite part of the attraction and you can sit on a bench in the vegetable patch, smell the lovely garden smells and fresh herbs and watch the world go by.

Beatrix potter was a wonderful children's writer she brought Peter Rabbit and Jemima puddle duck into many a Childs life and wrote 23 tales about all her famous characters during her life.
