    Come rain or shine, this summer you’ll find us in the garden or upstairs in our new café ready to serve up a slice of poetry. These relaxed and friendly gatherings are perfect for people of all ages – rediscover an old favourite poem, find a new one…or have a go at writing one of your own! Take a look at our website before your visit to find out where we will be located for each session.

    By Bus: Hop on the regular 599 open top service from Bowness, Windermere and Ambleside. Sit back, relax and admire the stunning views across the Lakes. The 555 also runs regularly between Keswick, Grasmere, Windermere and Kendal. The bus stops just across the Road from Dove Cottage.

    By bike: There are cycle parking stands near the attraction's restaurant.

    On Foot: There is an easy and safe two-minute walking route from Grasmere to Dove Cottage along Stock Lane. There is also a lakeside path or the Coffin Trail Bridleway which links Grasmere to Rydal near Ambleside. Both are fairly easy-going routes with great views.

    By Car: Leave the M6 at jct 36, follow signs for Kendal, Windermere and Ambleside. Dove Cottage, the Wordsworth Museum and Art Gallery is located on the A591, the main Kendal to Keswick road through the Lake District, just South of the Grasmere mini roundabout.
