Samuel Taylor Coleridge's garden

The garden in September and view of the back of Coleridge Cottage, Somerset

This 17th-century cottage was home to Samuel Taylor Coleridge for three years, from 1797.

It was during his time here that Coleridge wrote his finest works, including The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Kubla Khan, The Nightingale, Frost at Midnight and This Lime Tree Bower my Prison.
 
The small garden has been designed to capture the spirit of the poet’s time here. A mixture of summer wildflowers and meandering grass paths lead to a lime tree and bower, alluding to his poetry.
