The Coleridge Suite is spacious with a comfortable seating area and a private bathroom.
A large sleigh bed is central to the bedroom. Information on the history of the house provides fascinating reading for those with an interest in historical characters. This bedroom was once a library or Book Room frequented by the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth. Thomas Poole, a local scholar, owned this house. The owners have created this charming bedroom suite in the ‘Book Room’ that was frequented by Coleridge while returning to his…. ‘beloved Stowey’ in the Quantock Hills. Thomas Poole, the owner, enticed Coleridge to stay in what was then his impressive library and he even placed a bed for him in the corner of the room. In the summer months guests are welcome to sit in the delightful walled garden. It is reputed to have inspired the poet’s famous ‘Recollections of Love’, reportedly written while staying at The Old House in 1807 after the break-down of his marriage. It was to this very house the Wordsworths, Robert Southey, Humphrey Davy, Thomas and Josiah Wedgwood and many other influential figures visited regularly. We like to think the same atmosphere of tranquillity that so attracted Coleridge and his family still lingers here today… Situated at the start of the Coleridge Way, where better to start your walking than in his very footsteps!
Sarah’s Room, named after Coleridge’s wife offers a second charming twin/double room with its own en suite. It was after her sad separation from Samuel Coleridge that Sarah, stayed for many weeks at The Old House with her children enjoying the garden. Still today you will have to travel a long way to find a lovelier playground!
