Wordsworth came to Dove Cottage just before Christmas in 1799, after years of restless wandering and uncertainty as he returned with his sister, Dorothy, to their native Lake District to make a home. They chose a humble cottage with whitewashed walls and Lakeland slate floors, in a hamlet, Town End, on the edge of Grasmere village. We know it today as Dove Cottage, the place where poetry changed forever. Wordsworth described his new home and the garden surrounding it as “the loveliest spot that man hath ever found”.

It was a place that fed his inspiration, as here he wrote some of the world’s most famous poetry. It was also a bustling family home that in time housed Wordsworth’s wife and children. Nicola Slaney would agree, as it too was a great source of inspiration to her when creating her framed plaque of the property, with the lane outside the white-washed house overflowing with springtime daffodils and bluebells, while a flight of swallows swoop, and soar overhead.
