Decided to book tickets for tour on way home - so glad we did. Next year promises an even better experience. The guide was very knowledgeable and when asked questions proved he knew the history of Wordsworth - even his drug taking, although I suspect this would not have been mentioned if my partner had not asked. Nice tea room with good coffee and treats on a cold wet day.

Really brings you close to the Man himself. Following a short introductory film you get a small group, COVID secure, guided tour. It’s a beautiful atmospheric little cottage slightly overwhelmed by the later buildings around it.

After living in Cockermouth more than 40yrs ago and never visited Wordsworth House I thought I would go on a trip to Cumbria to see how the town has changed.when I got to Wordsworth House with the intention of a look round I was really disappointed, I realised it was probably closed because of the present situation but the outside looked almost derelict with dirty paintwork rust, untended front garden and a broken old gate held together with an old bike lock. Not even worthy of a photo I left disappointed.

Response from WordsworthHouse, Manager at Wordsworth House and Garden
Responded 1 Oct 2020
We are sorry you didn't get the chance to visit us, especially after making the effort after 40 years living in town! We are currently closed due to the coronavirus and the vast majority of the staff team- including our excellent gardener- are on furlough. The lime wash on the walls is historic and streaking naturally occurs: we try to be as historically accurate at possible so this would have looked very familiar to William Wordsworth. The garden is a bit wilder than usual, despite much weeding, but we have had a wonderful array of birdlife and insects this year, which is a real bonus. If you pop down this week you can also help yourself to some apples from the garden, which we have been offering for free to anyone who would like some. We are still taking very good care of the site, have actually had the opportunity to do some long-standing maintenance work and are looking forward to opening in spring 2021.

The house is arranged nicely and the small garden is nice but otherwise an over priced experience. More wordsworth specific features such as example poetry might have helped.

The garden is a lovely place to wander round with lots of beautiful flowers and apple trees. You also get a nice view over the River Derwent. It's a good place to visit.
