Once owned by Beatrix Potter, Penny Hill Farm holiday cottage is reached via Doctor Bridge, one of the prettiest spots on the River Esk.
The farm is now owned by the National Trust, and for the past 30 years has been run by Ralph and Margaret Jackson. Still a working farm, their main business is Herdwick sheep, but they also run a Bed and Breakfast from the farmhouse.
Beatrix Potter is often hailed as a key figure in saving the Herdwick sheep, from extinction. Herdwick sheep are one of the most hardy British hill sheep breeds, the current world population of Herdwicks is around 60,000 breeding females, and an estimated 40,000 of these are on National Trust farms.
