Hill Top, Near Sawrey, Hawkshead, Ambleside, Cumbria, LA22 0LF – Visit Now

Beatrix Potter bought Hill Top in 1905 with the proceeds from her first book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit; the 17th century farmhouse has since been turned into a time-capsule of her life, surrounded by a lovely cottage garden.
