Enjoy the tales of Beatrix Potter by visiting Hill Top. Glimpse the village shop of Ginger and Pickles as well as the gardens, fields and lanes that inspired the Tale of Peter Rabbit.

Full of her favourite things, the house appears as if Beatrix had just stepped out for a walk. Every room contains a reference to a picture in a 'tale'. The lovely cottage garden is a haphazard mix of flowers, herbs, fruit and vegetables. Make your way up the garden path to the front door and see for yourself why Beatrix loved this place.
