Big thanks to Jane, who married Tim on 17th February (ceremony at Brantwood, Reception and Wedding Breakfast at Belmount Hall – “… our wedding absolutely everything that we could have hoped for….. You, and Belmount, gave us a perfect wedding… “), who has sent us three fascinating books about Beatrix Potter, with a number of references to Belmount. In particular, given the cold weather at the moment, in a letter dated 13th May 1921 from Beatrix Potter to her friend Miss Louie Choyce, who helped her with farming in Sawrey during the First War, she stated:- “….

I just want to get started on gardening.
