    This is Beatrix Potters actual house, which is located on Hill Top Farm. Straight away you can see this is where she set alot of her stories. With the lettuce patch directly infront of her house, with only a fence separating the 2. you can imagine the little rabbits hopping about in it! You get a time to enter the house when you buy your ticket, so if you go on a busy day you could be up for a long wait. the house is set up as if she still lived there. its national trust, so if your a member its free!

    I have loved Beatrix Potters books since i was a kid, so i couldnt wait to see this! It was as if we entered the world of Beatrix Potter, seeing the world as she saw it. it was really well done, so much detail, i loved it! basically you go in this room to watch a short film, and then your let into this big room which is set out, book by book that she wrote, with the characters right infront of you! Even if you dont know the story, there are little computer screens to tell you the story line of each one.
