The holiday home that inspired a young Beatrix Potter to draw and paint wild animals has gone on the market for £1.25m.<br />
<br />
Ees Wyke is a magnificent country house that was rented by the childrens author's London-based parents in the summer holidays.<br />

It was said a teenage Beatrix used the Lake District scenery surrounding the Georgian property to indulge her interest in exploring and drawing wildlife.
