trip to the Lake District : Beatrix Potter's Hill Top

We had a great time (almost 4 hours!) picnicking by Coniston water, we moved to another Beatrix Potter's famous farmhouse, the Hill Top. In fact Hill Top was her first house she bought in Lake District. Previously (as mentioned in my last entry) we went to the Yew Tree farmhouse.

Here are some photographs we had at Hill Top. But no camera allowed inside it =(

on the way to Hill Top in New Sawrey

 the ticket room

 nearby Bed & Breakfast


Beautiful scenery.. all along the way. I'm sitting on wall stones, we think it is originally Roman stonework..not sure but it expanding everywhere here.



 the gate to Hill Top (this is the souvenir shops)

 The souvenir shop. 
Even until now, Beatrix Potter (1866- 1943) is still one of the world's best selling and best loved author. Legacy!

Entering the gate, and we passed by a garden..and look at those sheeps! 


Aariz likes to play with sheeps, but not this time honey.. lain kali mummy bawa pegi farm play ok

boleh pula Aariz nak masuk dalam tu, haha..sabar je lah

the porch

The Hill Top

Beatrix bought this working farmhouse as her home away from London, and as her artistic retreat. It was here she got ideas for her writing, that she featured in the villages, houses and this farm in her books. Some of them are The Tales of Tom Kitten and The Tales of Jemima Puddle Duck. I'd love to read all of her books to my children, good for imagination..erk mummy pun suka.

There are four bedrooms inside the house, two living rooms and all keep in good condition as it is, even the wallpapers! We also found Beatrix's first sketches, old photos, her dolls and few more things inside a house that you could imagine.



After Hill Top we went to the Fell Foot park, for an afternoon tea. I'm crazy over cream teas now. Inilah cara melepak kat sini ye..kedai mamak takde. But sadly, we were late that the cafe has closed. Terus takde mood haha. Thanks to this lovely creature.

And we went back to Bownese-on-Windermere town for a quick stroll before went back to our cottage.
