An amazing experience walking in the footsteps of Beatrix Potter. Surrounding views were astounding and Hill Top Farm itself was just phenomenal. We thoroughly enjoyed speaking to the very welcoming staff at the farm.

Had a fantastic day here and really interesting seeing all types of motor vehicles from push bikes to super cars... Brilliant and even enjoyed a nice coffee in the cafe 10/10.
