Beatrix Potter, Room 308

Peter Rabbit and his friends ask that you join them in this vibrant room featuring a double bed. Relax in the jetted clawfoot tube in the center of the cabbage patch and let your imagination soar into the world of Beatrix Potter.

Beatrix Potter was born on 28 July 1866 in South Kensington, London. She lived a lonely life at home, being educated by a governess and having little contact with other people. She had many animals that she kept as pets, studying them and making drawings.
Beatrix remained unmarried until the age of 47 when she married William Heelis, a Lake District solicitor. She dedicated her later years to preserving the ecology and natural beauty of the Lake District. She worked closely with The National Trust and left them a substantial part of her estate to be preserved as a living landscape.
