Beatrix Potter's House
Hilltop is now owned by the National Trust and welcomes visitors. The house, which was an inspiration for many of her stories, is left in its original state because Beatrix didn't want it turned into a museum. So no signs with explanations and descriptions on display. The house is full of her favourite things and stuff she collected over the years and it looks as if she's just popped out to the local shop. She never really lived here as she got married soon after she bought it, but didn't fancy letting a man live here with her. She came here to write and draw and just enjoy a bit of alone time away from the husband.
