Hill Top and Beatrix Potter

Hill Top Beatrix Potter
Anyone who knows me knows how much of a huge Beatrix Potter fan I am, I've loved her stories since I was a little girl and still thumb through the pages of my copies from time to time still now. I'm luck enough to live on the edge of The Lake District and I can be in Bowness within a 30 minute drive so I'm always popping up and lusting over all the Peter Rabbit merch up there! 
Rather embarrassingly, I must admit, I've never ventured to Hill Top which was a farmhouse that Beatrix Potter owned until she passed and left it in the protection of The National Trust.

  1. I am very jealous, I have always wanted to visit here as I love her stories and love history around a person. I have passed my love of Beatrix Potter onto my Daughter as well x
