Wordsworth Museum and Residences

William Wordsworth lived at Dove Cottage from 1799 to 1813, when he moved down the road to the more upmarket Rydal Mount and Gardens. The Dove Cottage residence was the site of his most creative phase and is home to the Wordsworth Museum, exhibiting many artefacts that inspired the writer. Wordsworth's final abode at Rydal Mount was a stately Victorian house with beautiful views across the valley. This house is also open to the public and offers visitors delicious scones in the tearoom.
