We are always happy to show guests around Hill Top and tell a little about the history of the house and its previous famous owners. We have created a number of photographic books about the Ransomes at Hill Top and the house’s unrivalled position overlooking the Rusland Valley. In addition, guests can view video presentations about the Ransomes and their changes to Hill Top, as well as the renovations made by us in more recent years.
