See Beatrix Potter’s dolls' house at Hill Top

Visitors at Hill Top admire Beatrix Potter's dolls' house

One of the many treasures you can see at Hill Top, Beatrix Potter’s house, is her dolls’ house.

This is the very dolls’ house Beatrix used to conjure up The Tale of Two Bad Mice, and visitors of all ages find it magical.

‘I really loved the dolls’ house inside Hill Top where the mice were so naughty,’ says four-year-old Ben.

Everything from the cradle to the birdcage and the tiny little spoons that are featured in the book can be spotted in the house. Bring a copy of the tale with you to play a game of I spy.

More dolls’ houses in the North West:

  • At Wordsworth House, Cumbria, you can read or write poetry, play word games and explore the dolls’ house, which was built by staff to resemble the house
  • The nursery bedroom at Lyme Park, Cheshire, is full of Edwardian toys to play with, including a beautiful dolls’ house
