Harebells were one of Beatrix's favourite flowers. These might well be the descendants of those Beatrix and William enjoyed on walks up to Moss Eccles tarn.

The Lake District is the amazing place it is today because of Beatrix's passion for buying farms. Her favourite would always be Hill Top. Facing south - ish, the front is bathed in sunshine (when it isn't raining). I can imagine her looking out of the window in the New Room and searching for inspiration in the view over the village and up the track to Moss Eccles.
|Yew Tree Farm and pandas?|
|Newly shorn - the red is just a mark!|
We would rather be chatting to visitors than checking our emails so thought we'd recruit a new member of staff! Meet Orinoco.
|Not more emails!|
