The cottage is as close to the days when laudanum fuelled Coleridge lived there with virtually abandoned wife and children and the garden is lovingly being brought to full life. Knowledgable and enthusiastic guides can tell you all about Coleridge, the romantic poets and his...More

Lovely little National Trust property with extremely informative volunteers, who gave us many insights into the world of Coleridge. Very easy to navigate around the property and great to be able to have a nose around since all rooms are free to explore. Great way...More

Visited with our 8 yr old granddaughter. The volunteers made the experience to be honest. The property was generously and enthusiastically staffed which, we find, makes a significant difference. There was a coded treasure hunt which suited our granddaughter (with considerable input from us), an...More

I've been to Burns Cottage in Ayr (the home of Scottish bard Robert Burns) and recall that it was tiny and really basic. I assumed that all poets lived in such humble circumstances. However, Coleridge apparently had a wealthy patron and some wealthy friends so...More

We really enjoyed our (unplanned) visit to Coleridge Cottage when we had an overnight stay at Nether Stowey. The staff were very welcoming and knowledgeable without being intrusive. The house and gardens were interesting and there were activities (writing with a quill and dressing up)...More
