Quaint small cottage. Car park in pub grounds opposite very welcome! Was Apple day when we visited, so we got to press our "harvest festival " apples (delicious). Several "characters" in the house eager to tell visitors about Coleridge. Some children's games in the garden, and small tea room(we didn't sample this). Stairs to upstairs steep. A chance to use...

Coleridge Cottage is a small 17th century cottage, the home of Samuel Coleridge for three years starting in 1797. Now, it's been transformed by the National Trust and is more impressive. Nothing in the house is from the time of his living there so the NT has rebuilt it in a style to replicate what it would have been like.... More

Great little gem. Sweet and interesting, and the volunteers deserve medals. Full of all the facts that you would need. Also, not just for literary buffs, also good for history buffs and the clothing exhibition in the outside room was fabulous. The lady knew her stuff and made the experience that more enjoyable. Definitely going again....AT CHRISTMAS!!!

I was so thrilled to actually be in this cottage where Coleridge composed his epic poem "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner" which I have loved since we studied it at school. I bought some books which were on display. The staff are so enthusiastic and knowledgeable and obviously love their subject. The cottage is well laid out and retains... More

The whole family enjoyed our visit to Coleridge Cottage. We felt immediately welcomed by the friendly on site team who were keen to help us learn about Coleridge. They engaged with our children (9 and 6) straight away and gave them the children's trail as well as a short introduction to the poet. We were then given more information about... More

Very interesting property once lived in by the poet Samuel Coleridge. It is small by comparison to other places but the staff have made huge efforts to make it welcoming and interesting with lots of information to read and listen to in the house and the gardens behind. It is not possible to get into the property in a wheelchair... More

The staff at Coleridge Cottage make this place come alive! It is small, well laid-out and very informative, but the staff are just amazing - so keen on their subject, so well-informed ... they just make the whole place come alive! Allow about an hour for your visit - we allowed two, but that was too long.

This place has won awards as a tourist attraction and it's easy to see why. Helpful and knowledgeable volunteer guides Well laid out and clearly labelled authentic relics of Coleridge himself. The cottage is small but they maximise the space well including a room where you put on a pair of headphones and relax in a comfy chair listening to... More
