Samuel Taylor Coleridge - in the life of this great man were some great women whose stories are rarely told. From Dorothy Wordsworth, "all fire and ardour", to Sara, his hard working wife who disappeared from his poetry altogether, these tours explore their lives, and how they lived within, and resisted, the norms of society.
These new tours of the Cottage tell the tales of the women in Coleridge's circle at Nether Stowey, and what life was like for women in the 18th century.

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|

- Assistance dogs are welcome.
- Due to narrow corridors and steep steps, the Cottage is unsuitable for wheelchairs. Please see our full access statement under 'facilities and access' and 'accessibility' for more details.
