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

The National Trust has done well. It's another place where you are allowed to touch and try on - great idea. The well is amazing - not sure how deep but you can see the water at the bottom. The garden is lovely.

From the moment we arrived at Coleridge Cottage the staff and volunteers could not have been more friendly or welcoming. The two guides were dressed in period costume and were very informative and knowledgeable. Their enthusiasm was infectious. Our knowledge of Samuel Taylor Coleridge was somewhat lacking and I suspect our teenage son may have known more than we did!... More

We all really enjoyed our visit to Coleridge Cottage as there was just so much to see and look at in such a small place. The garden is really nice and peaceful. Really good!

Coleridge Cottage is located in a town called Nether Stowey, THAT alone almost made it a must see on my list: let alone the times I was required to read and recite the Rime of the Ancient Mariner in school - including college! Unfortunately we were running a little late & when we got to the cottage it was close... More

There was a man dressed up in period costume in the entrance room providing useful information on the history of the Cottage, and very knowledgeable and personable he was too. The Cottage was interesting with different aspects of Coleridge's life and artifacts but also the broader history of the cottage and its place in the village. A real and warm... More

Lovely historic building. The staff were great and very passionate about Coleridge. Loved the poetry area where you could write and pin them on the board. Beautiful gardens. Well worth a visit

We spent a couple of hours at Coleridge Cottage. It was a great experience and kept our two young boys entertained too. The volunteers are helpful, friendly and informative and there is plenty to do as you walk around including trying out quill pens, dressing up and listening to some of Coleridge's poetry. The garden is also lovely with some... More
