The Beatrix Potter Trail
Ask in store for a map and route information.
- Along the Beatrix Potter Trail you will find Wray Castle, the site of Beatrix Potter's first Lake District holiday and where she fell in love with the Cumbrian countryside.
- Then it's off to Hawkshead, a picturesque small village where you can visit the Beatrix Potter Gallery.
- You then ride out past Esthwaite Water to Beatrix Potter's Hilltop, where she spent many years writing and illustrating her books.
Why take this route?
All of these places are on the quiet and scenic tracks and roads west of Lake Windermere, accessible from Ambleside or Bowness. They can easily be ridden in a day, including stopping to enjoy the sites and the scenery. Just get started early so you can fit it all in!
