Although Samuel Taylor Coleridge didn't actually live here for very long...he wrote some of his most famous poems here. The National Trust volunteers are full of fascinating information and the cottage itself is full of interesting artifacts and documents. The little tearoom at the back does lovely cakes too! There's a dressing up area for children and a quill writing... More

A small National Trust property packed full of interesting facts about Samuel Coleridge. The staff were amazingly helpful, informative with great sense of fun. Visitors are encouraged to be photographed in period clothes:-)) and there is a very nice tearoom.

The guides were super. Little tea shop there. Dressing up for adults. Very good value. Bigger than you think from outside. Large garden which must be beautiful in spring/summer

The National Trust volunteers were all very well informed and also very entertaining. We were very lucky to be able to visit this property in Nether Stowey. Great cup of tea in the cafe.

This little gem of a property is an absolute joy to visit. It is really well laid out and the story of the house and Coleridge is clear and engaging. The room guides clearly love the property and are really keen to share the enthusiasm with visitors. Many larger houses or museums would benefit from visiting here and learning about... More

I've been to the Coleridge Cottage twice. If you have an interest in Coleridge, his family and Wordsworth this will be worth a visit for you.

This is one of the National Trust's best run properties, which is perhaps not surprising since they've owned it since 1909 (I think, or thereabouts). The room guides are passionate about the Romantic poets and will very happily tell you about all the items in the rooms, which are laid out as close as feasibly possible to the way they... More

Thank you for your wonderful review, we are so pleased you enjoyed your visit. I'm sorry to read that you were unable to find our visitor toilet, if you do visit again please do ask to be directed to it. Signage to our shared car park is a little unclear at the moment but will be improved for next season. More
