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

I think it says a lot for the place given that before my visit I had not read a single Coleridge poem but walked out with a book of his poetry. The extent of my knowledge before my visit was that Coleridge wrote The Ancient Mariner, and that was pretty much it. The cottage itself blends very well into the... More

We absolutely loved our visit to Coleridge Cottage. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly and the rooms and exhibits bring Coleridge to life mainly due to their interactive nature along with the great explanations by staff throughout the house. There are seats in the garden to listen to excerpts from Coleridge's poetry which was a perfect way to finish our... More

House is worth visiting. Staff make a dress up effort. Tea room good but ran out of soup early. Nice pit of tea.

We have been passed this place previously but having seen it on TV recently decided to give it a visit. It is a small property, some of which has been added on in recent years with a bijou tea room and pretty wildflower garden at the rear. None of the contents are original although there are a number of items... More

The National Trust took over this cottage in 1994, but did not do too much until fully refurbished in 2011. They have made it into a very informative setting for one of England's outstanding poets, showing how he lead a very basic life after his brother got him out of the army, by declaring him insane. Very peaceful garden and... More

On Saturday 23 May 15, My husband and I went to visit Coleridge Cottage run by The National Trust. Coleridge Cottage was for two years the country home retreat of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, the famous poet, whose infamous works include ‘The Ancient Mariner’ and ‘The Kubla Khan’. Coleridge Cottage offers the opportunity to immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and... More

Plenty to see on the visit for such a small place. Well worth a visit and free parking too. Try and go when there is an event on as the staff are in costume.

Coleridge's home for two years - a charming cottage with many literary links. It has a small attractive garden too. For those interested there is a perfect example of a motte and bailey castle within walking distance..

This museum is a real gem. Since the National Trust has been able to made alterations in 2009, it has created a very enjoyable, well designed and captivating place to visit. If you are a follower of Coleridge or appreciate poetry itself, I am sure you will find this house most enjoyable. The staff were very engaging and helpful and... More
