Dove Cottage

Dove Cottage


Explore the traditional Lakeland cottage and home of the famous poet William Wordsworth and discover what life was like at the turn of the 19th Century. Take an entertaining tour of the cottage, hear about day-to-day life for Wordsworth and his family, and about the extraordinary words written at the cottage. Explore the Museum next door and delve into the life of Wordsworth; where he travelled to, what he saw and why he was concerned about many of the things we worry about today.

To celebrate Wordsworth’s 250th anniversary in 2020 there is a major National Lottery funded project entitled Reimagining Wordsworth, to celebrate Wordsworth’s life and times, his creativity and his relevance in fresh and exciting ways.
