AboutHill Top is a time capsule of this amazing woman's life. 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'. Beatrix used Hill Top and its surroundings as inspiration for many of her 'little books' - you'll recognise the rhubarb patch where Jemima Puddle-Duck laid her egg and the garden where Tom Kitten and his sisters played!
Hill Top is a small house with a timed entry system in place to avoid overcrowding and to protect the fragile interior. It can get very busy and visitors may sometimes have to wait to enter the house. Early sell-outs are possible, especially during school holidays. We recommend visiting at the weekends if you can. Closed Fridays for conservation work.
Limited car parking. No coach parking. Please ask for accessible parking space. Level access to ground floor, many steps to first floor rooms. Dim light, especially on overcast days.
