Pocket Guide: Nether Stowey Coleridge Cottage Hotels

Any visitor passing through Nether Stowey on the way to or from their Somerset hotel or B&B must be sure to pay a call at Coleridge Cottage. It's owned by the National Trust and is a showcase for the great philosopher and poet, his life and times. He lived here between 1797 and 1800 and wrote the dream poem Kublai Khan and The Rime of the Ancient Mariner during that period, two of his most famous pieces.

Somerset Hotels for Coleridge Cottage

You can find Coleridge Cottage in Lime Street. It was built in the 17th Century and consists of a serving room, kitchen and parlour on the ground floor and three bedrooms above. It's remarkable that Coleridge could write about vast seas, mariners and dream cities in such cramped conditions, even if opium famously lent him a helping hand! The rooms all survive exactly as they were at the time the poet resided here, and behind the cottage there's a small courtyard with a well which Coleridge noted in his journal as 'a nice well of fine spring water'. It's little authentic touches such as this that bring us closer to the great man, and any fan of his will be delighted with the place.

A Trip with Coleridge from Somerset Hotels

The building goes back to earlier than Coleridge's time, however, as it was refurbished around 1800, when the old casements were replaced with the modern sash windows. It was in the 19th century that the whole building was enlarged and turned into Moore's Coleridge Cottage Inn. In 1908 it was acquired for the nation by a society of Coleridge enthusiasts and scholars, and the following year the National Trust took it over. Unlike most protected dwellings of the great and the good in Britain, you're free to pick things up, sit in the original chairs, open the drawers and generally rummage around - within reason, of course! You won’t find 'hands off' notices at every turn, so it's even a good place to come with the kids from your Somerset hotel or B&B base.
