Beatrix Potter bought Hill Top in having fallen in love with the Lake District and the surrounding area. Over the next few years she spent as much time as possible at Hill Top, gaining inspiration for her stories from the farmhouse and the local villages.
This was our sweet little cottage, near Ambleside, down a long windy lane with a farm gate at the end that you had to open and close to go in and out.you could go for lovely walks straight from the cottage.
Hill Top Farm - Beatrix Potter wrote many of her famous children’s stories in this little house and it has been kept exactly as she left it, complete with her furniture and china. There is a traditional cottage garden attached.
