Hill Top Farm

Just a stone’s throw away from Sawrey House Hotel is our neighbour, Hill Top. This, once home of children’s author Beatrix Potter is now a National Trust attraction and the perfect starting place for your Beatrix Potter journey of discovery…


Moss Eccles Tarn

This gentle walk leads you up to one of Beatrix Potter’s favourite places, Moss Eccles Tarn. This is where she spent time painting, whilst her husband fished. It’s a great introduction to the place Beatrix loved the most, before or after your visit to Hill Top House….


Beatrix Potter Gallery
