I visited Dove house many years ago. My children and husband weren't at all interested in going in as they knew nothing of William Wordsworth and the £5 entrance fee at the time didn't go down too well. I absolutely loved the visit. When at school I was picked to do a poem of his "I wondered lonely as a cloud in a competition, I didn't win.Was overjoyed to go into his first home, that he shared with his wife and their many children. I touched just about everything, I had to be coaxed into the next room by the young american or was it canadian guide. The only disappointment was that we weren't allowed into the garden, maybe it's different now. I recommend this visit as it wasn't as impersonal as some where you don't get as up close. For any Wordworth fan, I highly recommend.
