Coleridge Cottage

Coleridge Cottage is a 17th Century Grade II listed building owned by the National Trust since 1909.

The cottage is famous as being the home for the poet Samuel Tayler Coleridge and his family for 3 years from 1797….while there he wrote the famous poems; The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, and Kubla Khan.

The cottage is now decorated in a style similar to that in which it would have been while he lived there, but because props have been used you are free to touch things and look in the drawers etc ;)

The rooms are all quite small and cosy, but the back garden is long and has a lot of wild flowers growing through it which have a really nice effect either side of the winding grass paths :)

It’s an interesting little building to have a look around, and there are a lot of poetry books in the rooms that you can sit and read.
