We're open seven days a week from March to October

Coleridge Cottage cosmos front autumn 2016

In 2018, you can visit Coleridge Cottage on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Coleridge Cottage has had a long and varied history. Since becoming one of the first properties to be taken on by the National Trust in 1909, it has been open to the public intermittently for over one hundred years.

Following a huge refurbishment project in 2011, there is more of the Cottage to see than ever before. The Cottage is now a hands-on celebration of Coleridge, and of Georgian life, and visitors can discover the story of Samuel Taylor Coleridge and his family through a series of rooms and the wildflower garden, whilst also watching the Cottage transform from a 17th century hovel into a Victorian pub.

This March, for the first time, the Cottage will be open seven days a week from the 3rd of March until the 28th of October. Come along and visit on our new opening days of Tuesday and Wednesday, or if you'd like to meet new people and learn new skills whilst looking after a special palce, you can come to a volunteering open day on the 7th or the 10th of February to find out about volunteering at Coleridge Cottage.
