A Georgian Christmas at Coleridge Cottage

Come along to Coleridge Cottage this December and experience an 18th Century Christmas. Get in the festive spirit and cosy up next to the open fire, listen to a poetry reading and enjoy a festive treat or two.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Escape to the 18th Century and experience what Christmas was like for Samuel Taylor Coleridge and his family. Delight in the sound of Christmas carols as you wander around the Cottage dressed in natural garlands. Have a go at creating your own Christmas craft and get cosy by the open fire and enjoy a poetry reading.

Why not treat yourself to a festive treat from the tearoom? Mince pies bring festive cheer to the tearoom menu. Relax next to the log burner and admire the natural garland display in the seating area.

Coleridge Cottage will be open on 9th and 10th December and 16th and 17th December, 11am-5pm (last entry 4pm).
