Reasons for trip

We decided to call at this National Trust property on the way back to the M5 from Dunster Castle, and it couldn’t have been more different.

It’s basically a tiny cottage where the poet Samuel Colerdige lived for part of his life, in what could not be termed luxurious conditions. There were only two rooms both downstairs and up, but an extra one has been added since his time. There’s not a lot to see, although the garden is pleasant. It’s a curiosity because of the presence of Coleridge, and more interesting if you are interested in his poetry and that of his counterparts such as Wordsworth.

Fortunately it was easy to find – only 100 yards from the main A39 road – as it didn’t take long to visit and can only be considered one of the Trust’s lesser attractions.
