Didn't even know this house existed till we drove past it by accident! Much is made of Wordsworth's later house in Grasmere, but this - his childhood home - should be on the tourist trail too. Lovely house with original furniture, lots of hands-on activities, characters dressed up in period costume, gorgeous smells coming rom the kitchen, quill pens to try... There's also a lovely garden that runs down to a view over the river. The garden does need some tidying up, which is a shame, but there are some lovely plants and beautiful apple trees. Nice café, with great cakes, and lift access. No car park - but we found an on-street-space right opposite, so no problems.
