Rydal Mount & Gardens

Be inspired by the life of our most famous Lake District poet as you visit the house that was Wordsworth best-loved family home for thirty seven years.

Still owned by his family, the house retains the lived-in character and warm atmosphere that was such an important part of William’s life.

The romantic five acre garden was, in large part, designed and planted by Wordsworth himself and is kept very much to the original plan. Taking a walk around his favourite outdoor places, it is easy to imagine how they inspired his prose and verse.
