Coleridge Cottage, in Nether Stowey, acquired for the nation by public subscription in 1909 and given to the National Trust was where the poet, Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834) lived between 1796 and 1800. He wrote 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner', 'Frost at Midnight', 'Kubla Khan' and the first part of 'Christabel' there. Coleridge’s sometime collaborator, William Wordsworth, and his sister Dorothy lived only three miles away.
