Hill Top

Exclusively British - - SUBSCRIPTION OFFER -

Near Sawrey, the Lake District Hill Top was Beatrix Pot­ter’s home for more than 30 years and is now owned by the Na­tional Trust. You’ll recog­nise many fea­tures of the house and the sur­round­ing coun­try­side, when you visit, as Pot­ter wrote her whim­si­cal tales from here and based the il­lus­tra­tions in some of her books on the cot­tage gar­den, farm and sur­round­ing hills. She in­structed the Na­tional Trust that the house be pre­sented as if she’d just popped out, with all her be­long­ings in their orig­i­nal place – it re­mains ut­terly charm­ing.
