Beatrix Potter - Hill Top Farm

Hill Top FarmHill Top Farm can be found near Sawrey, just outside of Ambleside, it is best known as the home of the famous children's author Beatrix Potter.

Beatrix bought the seventeenth-century farmhouse in 1905 and lived there until the 1920's. Now owned by the National Trust, Hill Top Farm is a time capsule of Beatrix's life with every room containing a reference to a picture in a 'tale'.

Hill Top's beautiful cottage gardens are also open to the public and there is a children's garden trail during holiday periods.
