The garden at Dove Cottage, Grasmere

  • Description

    "Dove Cottage was occupied by William Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy from 1799 to 1808. This was once the site of an outbuilding. It is now a garden with herbs, vegetables and flowers that Dorothy Wordsworth tended in her garden. The slate on the gate has the following that was written by William Wordsworth “Stop here whenever you are weary and rest as in a sanctuary” from 'To a butterfly' 20th April 1802."
