Lots of things to see

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!

Very interesting,everyone there very helpful and friendly. Lovely place to visit,both house and garden, lots of information on hand and you are able to explore the house at leisure and are free to open drawers and cupboards lots to see even though its not very big. You learn a lot about the poet and his life. Nice little cafe area... More

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

This small cottage was the home of Samuel Coleridge for a few years. It has been developed into a visitor attraction by the national trust. There are some memorabilia from Coleridge and some examples of household items from the time he was here. Most of the exhibits are there to be touched or handled and there are helpful guides to...

A small cottage with interesting exhibits to see and inspect, with much to read as well. The staff dress for the period and spend a good deal of time explaining Coleridge and his times and especially the dreadful life his poor wife, Sara (Sarah) lead after having married him. Coleridge himself (apart from writing some fine poetry) seems to have... More

The cottage is charming and it was lovely to see the fires lit in the rooms. The garden is very tranquil and there is a tea room and shop. Children will love the opportunity to write using a real quill. The volunteers are extremely knowledgable and keen to inform but their fervour can be a little oppressive. Some people prefer... More
