We were a group of 43, it is a beautiful garden on many levels. It is however difficult for a coach.

We (my husband and myself) pre-booked afternoon tea for my mum who's just turned 100. We were warmly greeted by Marian and her husband popped in later to see us.

This is my favourite of the Wordsworth houses. It's very bright and airy with interesting exhibits. A big change to the dark Dove House, which we visited on the same afternoon.

Marian provided exactly what we asked for, with an emphasis on sandwiches rather than cakes.

Would recommend to anyone who is celebrating a special event.

Really enjoyed visiting this house. It had a lovely homely feel and has lots of the original furnishings used by Wordsworth and his family. We arrived just as the house was opening for the day so we had the place to ourselves. I imagine in the peak season it could be very busy. The gardens are very relaxing to wander around, even though we went quite early in the year and all the flowers were not in full bloom yet. There is a small shop where you buy your tickets. The house and gardens are up a steep lane and there is a small car park which is only open when the house is.

I had friends from Singapore here and we went as part of a tour of the Lakes. Stunning house although we struggled to understand the parking arrangement. It was very quiet as the weather was quite bad that day. The lady who welcomed us was extremely kind and helpful. We noticed some contemporary photos on a table and asked her if they were of the modern day family. She said they were and that some of the family were there. A few moments later they appeared and very graciously agreed to have a photo taken with us. It was a great treat for us all. Beautiful house. Very homely. And lovely gardens also. We spent about 90mins there and saw all we wished to see. A wonderful place. Very kind people and a photo with a member of the Wordsworth family. Magical!
