Our 1st outing in The Lake District was to visit Beatrix Potter's Hill Top Farm - we loved every minute of our visit.

Peter Rabbit still lives there - we had a very nice visit with him.
The home is just as it was when the author lived there and the garden looks as though Peter Rabbit might pop out from beneath the rhubarb. Inside, the furnishings and collections of china and dolls all belonged to Beatrix Potter, including the desk where she worked. Lovers of the Beatrix Potter books will see throughout the house and the village the inspirations for many of the books’ illustrations. For instance, in the kitchen, the dresser and clock can be found in The Tailor of Gloucester and the fireplace in The Tale of Samuel Whiskers.

We walked the same paths that Beatrix walked.

We loved every view she loved.

The rain didn't stop us - it drizzled a little & was windy & chilly.
