Description
Hill Top

Delightful small 17th-century house where Beatrix Potter wrote many of her famous children's stories

Many of the enchanting illustrations for Beatrix Potter's little tales were inspired by Hill Top. It remains as she left it and in each room can be found something that appears in one of her books. The cottage garden contains the same pleasing mix of flowers, herbs, fruit and vegetables as grown by Beatrix. A selection of the original illustrations is displayed at the Beatrix Potter Gallery nearby
