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

This delightful easily accessible cottage hidden in a lovely corner of charming Nether Stowey was well worth the visit. S.T.C.'s biography is a fascinating and diverse one, filled with idiosyncrasy and irresponsible or addictive indulgence. For a creative and forward-thinking, sensitive genius, he could alternately...More

The cottage does have some historical interest although there is no original article belonging to the cottage as the Coleridge’s took their belongings when they left. The upstairs exhibition offers a good insight into Coleridge’s life. The garden is quaint and a lovely place to...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

Disappointing because the house/cottage has been greatly alterred and enlarged since Coleridge lived here. We were left with the impression that if it wasn't for the volunteer guides in period dress, the dwelling would be no different to other buildings off similar age in the...More

It was interesting to learn about Coleridge's life from the enthusiastic volunteers, even though we knew little of his poetry. It was an insight into life at the time (1796), although the building has been much altered and extended from when he lived there it...More
