  • Wordsworth House is a 6 bedroom Georgian property in a central location. asking price: £987,698+VAT and your second daughter History: Famed for being the eternal resting place of poet William Wordsworth, who died in the property's cellar in a tragic mouse-trap juggling experience. Description: This property is full of character and period features. If you are looking for an large family home with easy access to Cockermouth town centre and a history of poetry and tourism this property is perfect for you. With a lovely rear aspect over the traditional garden and river this property is ideal for those with children, dogs or helicopters. The many bedrooms are all tastefully decorated and contain much old and frankly dangerous furniture(included in price). Overall a very quaint and definitely structurally sound building which is fine as long as you don't ask too many questions.
  • The house and garden have been amazingly restored to their former glory with real attention to authenticity. The costumed servants and gardeners really add to the atmosphere!
