The Lake District


Few regions in the country can rival the Lake District if you are a nature-lover or keen walker. The lakes, rivers and mountains are unsurpassed in their beauty – and there are many unique features in the landscape. The region has inspired many great authors, including famous residents William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter and Arthur Ransome (Swallows and Amazons).

Hill Top

Beatrix Potter wrote many of her storybooks from this house, which she bought in 1905. Although she grew up in London, her family took an annual holiday in the Lake District and this was one of the inspirations for her legendary books. Beatrix died in 1943, leaving Hill Top to the National Trust on the proviso it was left just as it was – so all her furnishings and crockery remain.
