The Hall also boasts some very famous visitors including Beatrix Potter - Miss Potter often visited Hardcragg Hall and the house became the inspiration for Pigling Bland whilst Beatrix gazed down from the latticed bedroom window onto the piggery below. The pictures in the story book depict scenes from inside the Hall.
