Dove Cottage, Grasmere

4.4
Discover where William Wordsworth lived and wrote some of the greatest poetry in the English language. Step inside Dove Cottage, where little has changed since the Wordsworths resided there, and imagine their day-to-day lives. Wander through the garden--restored to reflect the way the Wordsworths kept it--that so inspired the poet. Take a guided tour for extra insights into life at the cottage. Children can participate in hands-on learning games in the family activity room. Head next door to the Wordsworth museum, where you will find the greatest collection of the Wordsworths’ poems, letters, and journals in the world. Make Dove Cottage a centerpiece of your Grasmere vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Grasmere attractions site.
