Rydal Mount House
The house, which now belongs to descendants of Wordsworth, retains a lived-in, family atmosphere. The dining room, part of the old Tudor cottage, with its original flagged floor and oak beams, contrasts pleasingly with the larger proportions of the drawing room and library, added in 1750.
Also to be seen are the family bedrooms and Wordsworth's attic study which he used when he was Poet Laureate. The house contains portraits, personal possesions and first editions of the poet's work.
