Historic home of the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge in Somerset near Bridgwater
Home of Romantic poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge
The 17th-century cottage was home to Coleridge for three years, from 1797. It was during his time here in Somerset that Coleridge wrote his finest works, including The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Kubla Khan, Frost at Midnight, The Nightingale, Cristabel and This Lime Tree Bower my Prison. Both Coleridge and Wordsworth are seen as crucial in the development of the literary Romantic Movement.
Coleridge Cottage has a rich and fascinating history, from a humble Georgian home to its transformation into ‘Moore’s Coleridge Cottage Inn’ during the Victorian era. As a result of a major redevelopment project in 2011, you can now explore parts of the cottage never previously open to the public, and explore atmospheric cottage rooms which have been recreated as though the Coleridge family had just walked out.
Please note the cottage is unsuitable for wheelchairs due to small rooms and narrow corridors.
