Described as a ‘time-capsule’ of Beatrix Potter’s life, Hill Top is a charming home where you can find in each room a reference to a picture in one of her much-loved tales.
Originally purchased with the proceeds of the Tale of Peter Rabbit, and meticulously maintained, this is a place that Beatrix loved and where she was inspired to write many more adventures for her beloved creatures. Meander along the path from the house and enjoy the cottage-garden which is filled with seasonal flowers and vegetables.
There is a timed-ticket system in place to avoid overcrowding the house. Tickets cannot be booked in advance, so in high season you may have a short wait for entry.
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.
