Wintertide Reflections at Dove Cottage

As the nights draw in and the days grow colder, it is the time of year to use the winter as the Romantics did – to read, to learn, and to share stories in good company.
Pull up a chair in our new Café and enjoy a short informal talk on a topic connected to the Wordsworths. All with a hot drink and a seasonal bake close to hand, and led by our knowledgeable staff and trainees!
