Slack cottage is one of the farms that Beatrix Potter invested in during her life. After driving through the Lake District and the Hilltop area, I can see why she did. The scenery is awe-inspiring and the flowers were the most vibrant colors I've ever seen. Slack Cottage resembles the farm house that you would see in the early 1900's. For all intends and purposes, it is still that farm house from the 1900's. The inside is refurbished to reflect what we are used to seeing today. After speaking with the owners, they mentioned that the Ms. Potters Trust doesn't allow them to make too many adaptations to the house. The slate floor in the kitchen is the same floor that was placed when Beatrix purchased the property. The house stone is in the same stone and in same layout as it was during Beatrix's time. This is what made this B&B so cool to me and my family. The owners of the B&B were very friendly and very open about their lives. They asked us questions about our holiday and seemed genuinely interested in hearing our travels. Very awesome indeed!
