Anachronisms 

At the very start of the movie a pencil is being sharpened with a knife, which is accurate for the period, however, when the pencil is taken from the box, before sharpening, it has clearly been sharpened with a modern pencil sharpener.

In the film the book "The Tale of Jemima Puddle-Duck" is shown to be published followed by "The Tale of Two Bad Mice" then "The Tale of Mrs Tiggy-Winkle". In reality "Two Bad Mice" and "Tiggy-Winkle" were released in 1904 and 1905 respectively and "Jemima Puddle Duck" wasn't published until 1908 with five other books in the intermediate years.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

While Millie is outside Beatrix's room we see her shadow against the door and it reveals that her mouth movement is out of sync with the sound.

Errors in geography 

The train crosses Arten Gill viaduct in a southerly direction on the Settle Carlisle railway line. She would be going north from London to Penrith (for Keswick), and would cross northwards.

Factual errors 

Norman actually proposed to Beatrix in a letter, and her parents never softened their opposition to the match.

Revealing mistakes 

In the railway station scene filmed on the Bluebell Railway, the LNWR on the tank locomotive has been very visibly altered from LWSR. The N stuck over the W is a really bodged job for such a close up shot.
