Dove Cottage and The Wordsworth Museum (Grasmere, United Kingdom)
Poet William Wordsworth made his home at Dove Cottage in Grasmere at the beginning of the 1800s with his wife Mary, their three children and sister Dorothy and it was here that he was at his most productive. Originating in the early seventeenth century, the house is now a Grade 1 listed building and is administered by the Wordsworth Trust. The house and gardens are open to the public. Staff take visitors on a guided tour of the two storeys where the rooms have been decorated with the family’s household items, furniture and family possessions. The museum contains many of Wordsworth’s books, memorabilia and original manuscripts. The garden reproduces the “half wild state” which was created by Dorothy from local plants and materials.
