Disappointing visit, nothing to see, no information. Probably mostly caused by Covid19. There was nothing worth seeing in the garden. It should be better in spring/summer and when the house can be opened.

We have to agree with yesterday’s review. Not worth the money or the effort to visit. Beatrice Potter would be ashamed. The staff are lovely and welcoming but there has been no effort made at all with what you are allowed to see. The garden is in a terrible state even for November. The neighbouring B and B garden is more enjoyable to look at as you walk past as well as other gardens in the village. The National Trust needs to spend some money and attention on It before charging people.

Stop ripping people off!! Get rid of all the weeds!! Not a flower in sight.Paid £10.00 for 2 of us to walk up one side of garden and down the other.Took exactly 5 minutes.Absolutely no flowers in sight, just the dead ,wilted remains of rhubarb and dried up dead allium stalks!! The garden has not been tended to for months.Absolutely disgraceful that you can get away with this!! Shameful!!!!

Used to regularly stay in the area with my family when I was younger so couldn't resist a visit since we were in the area. The house is shut but there is still access to the gardens and shop at a reduced price but happy to pay this so it keeps running. There is a lovely pop up cafe set up outside so we found it a nice place to start our day with a cup of tea. The village of Near Sawrey is also worth a little walk around.

Really enjoyable visit to Hill Top on Friday afternoon! The volunteers and staff were brilliant at pointing out points of interest. A special thanks to the lovely American lady at the ticket desk who was especially friendly - put a smile on our faces after experiencing unfortunate racism at other places we visited. Highly recommend the hot chocolate at Joey’s Cafe too! :-)
