Philip and Dorothy Broadley are certainly fine and hospitable innkeepers, and their three bedrooms are as charming and cozy as you'd want in a small British inn (including D.I.Y. tea trays). The five real ales on tap in the dining pub are delightful, and the Tower Bank Arms even has a fishing license so that guests can angle the local lakes. None of these charms, however, are why folks flock to this National Trust–owned 17th-century inn. They come because Beatrix Potter once lived next door at Hill Top (preserved as it was the day she died), and because the Tower Bank Arms was the model for the country inn in the author's The Tale of Jemima Puddleduck.
