  • The house itself is nothing to talk about; however the view of the river is stunning. The coffee shop is a must-visit for some excellent scone and cakes. Spend some time on the grass watching the rive...  more »
  • We visited the house on our first day in Cockermouth, when it was raining, so this proved to be a good day to go to the house. Very interesting and very friendly helpful guides.  more »

  • This place gives you the feeling of history as the furniture was all from the correct period. Actually, the bureau in the front room was the actual one which belonged to Wiilliam. The garden is large and full of a variety of fruit and veg, which is a credit to the gardeners there. There was a tour guide taking people through the house and we listened in on one room and he seemed very knowledgeable. There was even a harpsicord in the drawing room, which you are allowed to play if you wish to and I was very tempted, maybe next time!... If you like this sort of thing then please visit and enjoy everything there is on offer here, you won't regret it.
  • Interesting to see the house as it would have been when Wordsworth lived there. Staff in period costume happy to answer questions. Museums usually say "don't touch" but here we were invited to play the harpsichord. Wonderful experience.
  • Enjoyed this visit way more than expected. Interactive rooms allowed the inquisitive side of me to explore a bit more and nice guides to ask questions of. Beautiful gardens too. Went during the Word Board exhibition which was really interesting too
  • Wordsworth lived for a few years when he was a boy - Hmmmm! However, the architecture and decor are very interesting - a fine example of a grand town house of the period. Really nice garden and a decent cafe.
  • Worth a visit if you're in the area. If only to see what life was like at that time in history.
