A must for the lovers of Beatrix Potter while visiting the Lake District is Near Sawrey with the home of the writer, which is open to the public and is wonderful to see. She was a great champion of conservation in the Lake District and she donated a lot of the Nation Trust land there. In fact Beatrix Potter was a devoted farmer and an expert on one type of sheep.
