A poetic inspiration

This 17th-century cottage has a plain simplicity that belies the creative poetic outpouring it inspired in its most famous inhabitant. The house was the beloved home of a Romantic literary figure, who lived here for eight years with his sister. The property is set in an idyllic rural location – the perfect spot to wander into the countryside to admire the daffodils and other flora. These days around 70,000 visitors descend each year to marvel at this charming place of ‘plain living and high thinking’.
