Lingholm Estate

Details

Central to the Lingholm estate is a grand Victorian mansion where Beatrix Potter spent ten summer holidays between 1885 and 1907, and also wrote Squirrel Nutkin.

The estate’s Victorian Walled Garden is on the exact spot of the old kitchen gardens, which Beatrix Potter credited as the inspiration for Mr McGregor’s garden in The Tale of Peter Rabbit.

Walkers can enjoy a footpath through the estate from the Catbells path leading up to the Walled Garden, alongside a café, artisan bakery and shop. For longer visits, there are also an array of unique self-catering properties on the estate.
