Stay in Beatrix Potter's Lake District

The Lake District is a fabulous holiday destination, and the vicinity of Beatrix Potter's house makes an ideal base for a break.

Stay near Hill Top

In the Lake District the National Trust owns and cares for a large number and variety of buildings. Many of these are working farms or private homes but some are let to tenants who run them as Bed and Breakfasts or pubs and hotels.

In addition we have Trust holiday cottages and campsites, giving everyone the opportunity to stay over in a special place.

If you're looking for somewhere to stay very close to Hill Top, in Near Sawrey itself there are two places - The Tower Bank Arms and the Sawrey House Hotel, both just a stone's throw from Hill Top.
