National trust property

The museum is interesting and interactive. Reasonable entrance fee. Café and a pub over the road. Nice village to wander round if the weather is good.

I didn't expect this to be as good as it was. It was really interesting and the staff were very friendly. The garden offers a peaceful haven to listen to some poetry. The tea shop has the most fantastic cheese scones...you have to have one. Easy to find and you can park in the pub opposite. The only reason for... More

Visited the cottage and it was a treasure. Lots of interesting facts and original items from Coleridge past. The garden was lovely and wild and have some beautiful flowers. Interesting facts written in every room and also on the walls The tearoom was such value for money with A Poets Lunch! Please try if you visit.

This is a loverly place to visit, absolutely packed with details. The volunteers are extremely knowledgable and very friendly. A large number of props have been used to decorate the property and to give character to the place. Including a large number of stuffed rats. All in all this is perhaps the best national trust venue I have seen in... More

We heard a fascinating talk about Coleridge. He was apparently a Unitarian (I had to look it up) and there was more to his poems than initially meets the eye - so i have been reading them again. A pleasant tea shop on site.

Had a great time here. The tour was very well executed and the guides are well informed and very happy to answer any questions you may have. It's a very hands on experience with audio equipment for the hard of hearing. Stairs are very steep and not good for people with walking problems but understandable considering the age of the...

Owned by the National Trust, the poet Coleridge lived in this cottage in the late 18th century. Interesting detail about his family life - seems like his wife Sara had a difficult life with him! - and the inspiration for some of his poems. The cottage is quite small, but very 'hands on' unlike many NT properties. Lots of things... More

Located in Nether Stowey, which is worth a visit anyway, Coleridge Cottage is immediately opposite the 'Ancient Mariner' inn which is approximately half a mile from the car park near the library, although roadside parking may be possible nearer the cottage. There is a fee for admission unless you are a member of the National Trust. A visit to the... More
