|Our Visitor Experience Manager Jo talked about Beatrix's life|
|Arthur enjoyed the view from the New Room and The Tale of Peter Rabbit|
Filmed a few weeks ago when there was still snow on the ground, but only shown this week, Arthur took a look at Beatrix and her writing, and filmed inside her own lovely Hill Top cottage. It came only days after Jacquelyn had joined us as House & Collections Manager to cover for Liz who had gone on maternity leave. We can only wonder what she thought when she was told one of her first tasks was a "sleep-over" with a TV presenter!

Arthur stayed overnight, sleeping downstairs, and his choice of bedtime reading was 'The Tale of Samuel Whiskers'. In the morning his comment "that was not the warmest night I've ever spent" was probably an understatement! but he did have an experience very few indeed have had since the cottage came to the Trust after Beatrix's death in 1943.
If you missed it on The One Show but would still like the chance to see it, it's available on BBC i-Player until the 5th March, here's the link (the item is about 20 minutes into the show.)
