About
Our Beatrix Potter's Favourite Countryside Private Tour is the perfect tour for small groups of families or friends who wish to have a more intimate experience whilst travelling the Lake District.

Great trip for mum's 60th
Aug. 2018 • Family
This was perfect for what we wanted as we didn't want the hassle of driving and trying to park during peak season. Geoff our driver and guide was great - he was really knowledgeable and friendly...also a pretty great driver navigating all the windy narrow roads in the mini bus safely! We hadn't booked tickets for Hilltop Farm but Geoff and one of his colleagues back in the office managed to sort this out for us during the tour so when we got there we could pretty much go straight in. I would highly recommend using Mountain Goat - thanks for helping to make my mum's 60th birthday so special!

Great one day tour
Oct. 2017 • Friends
We met at the visitors centre near the Windermere station in the morning and were transported in a small bus. The driver was friendly and informative. The countryside was beautiful. We also were taken to roam around the house and gardens which had belonged to Beatrix Potter. There were opportunities for photo shoots. We stopped at a nearby village where we could choose where to eat lunch. A thoroughly enjoyable day.
