See if you can spot the place where a hedgehog has left her washing out to dry, where a frog has been fishing and where a naughty bunny has lost his coat and shoes. Tick off the scenes you find and then venture inside the House to discover models of the characters themselves representing a dozen of Potter's best loved stories.
