William Wordsworth's inspirational home for about eight years. Entrance to the Cottage and Museum was £7.50 for adults. I thought that it was a little expensive but, after visiting both attractions, it turned out to be a bargain. You can wander around the Wordsworth Museum and Art Gallery unaccompanied but you must take a guided tour of Dove Cottage itself. We loved the personal effects and photographs of Wordsworth, his sister and contemporaries, some of whom were drug inspired. We were a bit disappointed that we could not take a few photographs in Dove Cottage though.
The guide was excellent. She had a lot of knowledge of both Wordsworth and his friends but also of the world in which he lived. Well worth a visit!
