Visit Beatrix Potter’s Cumbrian house
Hill Top, which dates back to the 17th century, was used by Beatrix Potter as an artistic retreat when she bought it in 1906
The Cumbrian farmhouse where Peter Rabbit creator Beatrix Potter lived is one huge fascinating time capsule of her life.
Hill Top, which dates back to the 17th century, was used by the author as an artistic retreat when she bought it in 1906 – from the proceeds of the Tale of Peter Rabbit – and was left to the National Trust when she passed away in 1943.
It has been kept just as it was when she stayed there and is ‘full of her favourite things’, the National Trust says.
The cottage, it explains, was used as inspiration for many of her books – along with the surrounding countryside – and children will left full of wonder by its beautiful gardens and rustic rooms.
There are also the beautiful hay meadows at Hill Top to explore. They were much loved by Beatrix Potter and it’s possible to see just why on a ranger-led guided walk.
Hill Top can be found in Near Sawrey, Hawkshead, Ambleside.

The Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in London is a fascinating attraction for Peter Rabbit fans as it holds the world’s largest collection of Beatrix Potter drawings, photographs, correspondence and manuscripts.
The collection includes the original illustrations for The Tale of Peter Rabbit and correspondence between Beatrix Potter and her publisher.
A highlight is the celebrated ‘Peter Rabbit Picture Letter’ which, the V&A explains, was sent to Noel Moore in 1893 and told the story of Peter Rabbit for the first time.
The V&A hosts a changing display on Beatrix Potter’s work while the full collection can be seen at Blythe House Archive And Library Reading Room, near Olympia.
Explore the mesmerising filming locations for Miss Potter in the Lake District
Picture-perfect Derwentwater was one of the filming locations for the hit 2006 movie Miss Potter. It’s perfect for a ramble
Renee Zellweger played Beatrix Potter in the hit 2006 movie Miss Potter – and many of the key scenes were filmed in the stunning Lake District, where she spent decades as a sheep farmer and where many of her books, including Squirrel Nutkin and The Tale of Benjamin Bunny, were set.
The locations are all great places for children to explore – magical areas that will give them a sense of how Potter was inspired to conjure up her amazing characters.
Picture-perfect Derwentwater was one of the main filming locations, along with the fells near Tarn Hows and Loughrigg Tarn.
Tranquil Loweswater, which can be walked around with ease, was also used for several scenes.
