To be honest, I had little knowledge of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, though I recognised a number of his poems, for example the Rime of the Ancient Mariner, together with William Wordsworth they founded the literary Romantic Movement. The cottage has been extensively renovated and returned...More

I visited here with my A level English Lit student daughter who also loves history. I knew very little of him, but the guides were very knowledgeable and happy to talk about his life. Yes the rooms are sparse and probably not his original belongings,...More

Really enjoyed a memorable visit to this treasured location! To see the practicalities for living and writing in 1800 was an eye opener. To think Sam had to use a quill and ink writing up notes "in the field" adds to the scale of his...More
