Rydal Mount & Gardens

"Home of William Wordsworth and his family between 1813 - 1850"

The house, which now belongs to descendents of the poet, retains a lived-in, family atmosphere and has seen little change since Wordsworth and his family came to live there in 1813.

The dining room, part of the old Tudor cottage, with its original flagged floor and oak beams, contrasts pleasingly with the larger proportions of the drawing room and library, added in 1750.
