Re: A holiday home where Beatrix Potter drew parts of The Tale of Peter Rabbit is up for sale.<br />
The renowned author wrote a letter from the seaside home in Tenby, Pembrokeshire, in 1900 telling tales of rabbits living in the cliffs.<br />
She was also inspired by the garden of the Grade II-listed Georgian property and painted a lily pond that was used in the book.<br />
Croft House has been put on the market for £1.8m.<br />
The building was once split into two houses - with Potter staying at number two.<br />
Andrew Lowe, whose family have owned the property since 1964, said that in 1900 Ms Potter wrote four 'Tenby letters' to the children of governess Annie Moore.<br />
"She also did two paintings of the garden of Croft House, no longer part of the property," he continued.<br />
"The lily pond illustration that appears in The Tale of Peter Rabbit was taken from one of these paintings."
