She owned Hill Top for 38 yrs. Entering the house you step back in time. The house is arranging in a similar way to how it would have been all those years ago. Where Beatrix would have had her treasured furniture and possessions.
Hill Top is the place where she wrote and illustrated many of her little books.
Outside you can explore her much loved garden. There are trails here fro the children.
Back inside you can walk in Beatrix Potter`s footspteps: warm yourself by her kitchen fire, spot her hat hanging on the peg in the kitchen; hear the clock still strike on the hour ... Hill Top opens the door into a time capsule of this amazing women`s life. Everything at Hill Top belonged to Beatrix. You can even see the desk where she worked. Owned now by the National Trust this house is now safe and the history that surrounds it will be there for us to see and that of our children and grandchildren there after.
