I don’t have much interest in poetry but being in the area with my baby and having some time to kill I decided to go and have a look round. The volunteers were very welcoming and enthusiastic and really make the place. I enjoyed the...More
Arrived this afternoon with our Scottish Nat Trust cards, asked which part of Scotland we came from when we replied we don't ,the rude voluteer in front of other visitors in her loud voice stated "you know we don't get any money from them "...More
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

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
