Belmount Hall is one of the finest Georgian Houses in the Lake District and was once owned by Beatrix Potter.
“Beatrix Potter and her solicitor husband acquired the Belmount estate in 1938 from her friend Rebekah Owen (an admirer and friend of Thomas Hardy who had a considerable Hardy collection, which is now in Colby College Library, Maine, USA).
In 1939, Potter wrote to her friend Caroline Clark:- “My eccentric old friend Miss Owen has died in Rome (U.S.A. citizen and executor a New York bank) so I have a free hand in an old walled garden of over an acre at Belmount Hall. The old fan-trained fruit trees in the last stage of old age. I have planted some clematis against them, and some shrubs, such as ceanothus, between, to gradually grow into their place. Is chimonanthus fragrans a bush that would grow? I have witch hazel, and shrubby spireas, and syringas. ………… I should like to plant some bushes that might grow on at Belmount Hall without much attention? The garden is not seriously weedy. It is carpeted with jonquils and spring flowers.” Her husband, William Heelis, gave Belmount Hall to the National Trust, after her death and they have tried to continue the gardening philosophy of Beatrix Potter…… .
Belmount Hall is situated about 10 minutes from Ambleside, 1 mile north of Hawkshead, within easy reach of Esthwaite Water, and Near Sawrey, where Beatrix Potter spent much of her life at the famous Hill Top. The house enjoys superb views of Esthwaite Water, with Gummers How in the far distance. It was built in 1774 by the Reverend Reginald Braithwaite, who was vicar of Hawkshead for 38 years.” Source – Belmount Hall
