Full Description
This was William Wordsworth’s best-loved family home for the greater part of his life, from 1813 to his death in 1850 at the age of 80. The house, which was a focus for romantic literature, continues to be owned by the Wordsworth family and retains the feel of a lived-in family home. Wordsworth was a keen landscape gardener, and the 5-acre garden remains very much as he designed it. It consists of fell-side terraces, rock pools and an ancient mound.
