Up the garden path
Beatrix Potter liked this view so much that she included it in two of her books - The Tale of Tom Kitten and the Tale of Pigling Bland. Imagine, as you walk, how you are following in the footsteps of paws and trotters.
The path is the ideal place to admire the informally planted flower beds. In the height of summer the beds are stuffed with flowers and vegetables, planted in the English country garden style. Through the door in the redbrick wall, you'll see the more formal vegetable garden and another lovely view of Hill Top house through the garden gate.
Hill Top garden, although comparable in size to the gardens many of you have at home, welcomes well over 100,000 visitors each a year. As if that isn't challenge enough, Pete our gardener also strives to garden as organically as possible.
