Beatrix Beyond Hill Top

Go beyond Hill Top to experience Beatrix Potter's wide legacy in her much loved village of Near Sawrey, including exclusive access to the farmyard, Castle Cottage and the opportunity to enjoy one of Beatrix's favourite views not normally accessible.

  • Booking essential

This tour takes you to the familiar Hill Top setting, then beyond, to see the whole of Beatrix Potter's legacy in the village of Near Sawrey. Discover how modern day Sawrey still retains many of the views she was determined to preserve. You can find out how those living in the village today are finding new ways to make a living from farming and from the fleece of Herdwick sheep descended from Beatrix's flocks. This includes entry to Hill Top. Sept & Oct events available to book in August.
