Hill Top - The home of Beatrix Potter

View of the cottage at Hilltop from the garden

Beatrix Potter wrote many of her famous children's stories in this little 17th-century house and it has been kept exactly as she left it, complete with her furniture and china. There is a traditional Lakeland garden attached where many scenes from her takes are set.

Beatrix Potter Gallery

A selection of rarely seen, original illustrations are on display at the Beatrix Potter Gallery, in Hawkshead village center. It’s a must see for all Beatrix Potter fans, young and old, and the perfect addition to your trip to Hill Top.
