On this day in 1866, writer and illustrator Beatrix Potter was born. Following the success of her little book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, Beatrix bought this 17th-century farmhouse Hill Top. Her garden is home to cottage garden favourites such as geraniums and foxgloves, rambling roses and honeysuckle. Visiting at this time of year, you will see why Beatrix Potter loved it so much. #nationaltrust #lakedistrict
