About Us

From a Love of 'Steamers'

Our family owned business grew in part from the late Lord Wakefield’s interests in the ‘steamers’ which sail on Ullswater in the north-east of the English Lake District and the narrow gauge Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway in the west.

Inevitably, retailing played a part in running two popular visitor attractions, but in some ways it was peripheral to the successful development of the business. The construction of a new pier-house at the ‘Steamers’ in the late 1990s, the acquisition of the National Park’s tourist information centre in Pooley Bridge at the northern end of the lake, and a brand new station building at the Railway’s Dalegarth terminus which opened in 2005, afforded the space to invest in retail gifts to an extent impossible to achieve before.

In 2007, the company negotiated a license to trade as Peter Rabbit and Friends™ and currently operate shops under this name in the Beatrix Potter heartlands of Bowness-on-Windermere and Hawkshead, as well as in the delightful market town of Keswick.
