I visited this during their Georgian Christmas theme and as it was not too busy it was a delightful time. It was is very small but very atomspheric and well prsesnted - fires in most rooms of course being December. Staff were a delight dressed in costume and so helpful, friendly and gave you lots of time. Activities for children... More

The National Trust has them all - some good, some bad, some between This is small and unspectacular but makes up for it by being warm, friendly and enthusiastically presented. It reeks with history from the very start of the modern world. Nice little garden as well and a cat tosteal away with

We visited in the autumn, the wild flower garden was past its best, but still colour in the rest of the garden, the volunteers work very hard to keep the garden ship shape. If you live nearby more volunteers needed

Lovely insight into a poets life. Simple and visually appealing! Open the drawers, try on the clothing, feel the atmosphere.

The cottage is atmospheric and beautiful in itself but its connection with Coleridge makes it a wonderful visit for anyone interested in the poet and his life. You can see the room where he wrote 'Frost at Midnight.' The staff are friendly and helpful in guiding you through the cottage. There's also a garden at the back where the Coleridges... More

It is quite austere the cottage, but well worth the visit. The guides are excellent, just listen to their stories, they evoke the period so well. Also the wood fires, and the smoke were an inspired extra detail. There are some very interesting items on display.

As soon as we walked into Coleridge Cottage the smell of the open fire brought back so many childhood memories. Seeing the cottage set out as it was in Coleridges time is amazing. Sitting next to the fire where he wrote some of his major poems is very atmospheric. There is a natural garden to the rear of the building... More

While staying in nearby Taunton, i decided to visit this Trust property since I've had a lifelong interest in literature and a moderate intererest in Coleridge. The cottage is just up the road from Bridgewater in a village called Nether Stowey which nestles at the foot of the breathtaking and outstandingly beautiful Quantocks. (No wonder he produced his best work... More

Certainly worth a visit if you're in the area but don't expect to be bowled over. Coleridge lived here with his wife for a bit less than three years from 1797 but the cottage you see today has been enlarged and extended since the poet's time. It also no longer has the thatch Coleridge would have known and the roof... More

Wasn't sure if this place would be interesting enough for us but we really enjoyed our visit. The information given was very informative. Tea and cake was delicious and very good value. Pleased we took the time to stop here.
