Beatrix Potter's 17th-century farmhouse: a time-capsule of her life
Enjoy the tale of Beatrix Potter by visiting Hill Top. Full of her favourite things, this house appears as if Beatrix had just stepped out for a walk. Every room contains a reference to a picture in a 'tale'.
The lovely cottage garden is a haphazard mix of flowers, herbs, fruit and vegetables.
Hill Top is a small house and a timed-ticket system is in operation to avoid overcrowding and to protect the interior. Hill Top can be very busy and visitors may sometimes have to wait to enter the house.
After our winter closure, the house re-opens to visitors on Saturday 9 February 2013, along with the garden and shop.
Please note: tickets cannot be booked in advance and early sell-outs are possible.
Things to enjoy here
Inside the house we're taking you back to 1913 - a busy year for Beatrix.
A traditional English country cottage garden which sets off the house perfectly.
Lovely Beatrix Potter gifts for children, fans and collectors; shop in person or on-line.
