One of the most important poetry landmarks in the UK. The house rented by William and Dorothy Wordsworth and frequented by Coleridge, who lived in nearby Nether Stowey. It was here that they produced the "Lyrical Ballads" the clarion call of the romantic movement and one of the most important poetry books in history. The house, totally unspoilt, is now a pretty 2* country hotel with a great wine list and delicious local organic food (including home grown vegetables) on the menu for dinner. One of the UK's best kept literary secrets. Why more literary pilgrims do not go to stay I cannot imagine!
