Wordsworth House Stately Home in Cockermouth, Cumbria, England


Childhood home of William Wordsworth

In the 1770s, when the young William lived in Wordsworth House it must have been a lively, bustling home. Imagine the noise, smells and clutter generated by a household of two parents, five children, four servants, and a variety of animals!

Today, the National Trust has recreated this environment, so you can meet some of the household and find out what life was like for the maid, the man servant and the clerk.

Enjoy the sights and sounds of a working 18th centtury kitchen and learn how they cooked their home grown poroduce.

Explore the newly restored garden where William and Dorothy loved to play.

Using the results of several years of in-depth research, the house and garden have been taken back to the 1770s, right down to the last knife and fork. In some rooms, visitors can actually touch and make use of reproduction furnishings on display. Now, stepping in through the front door, visitors become enclosed in the fascinating world of this 18th-century family home.
