Wordsworth House, the birthplace and childhood home of poet William Wordsworth has been re-opened after a pound;1 million re-development by the National Trust. The beautiful Cumbrian surroundings of the Georgian household became the inspiration for the poet's idealisation of nature and childhood and it has been re-decorated using authentic furnishings and colours. New rooms have also been opened up to show a full replica kitchen and the young William's bedroom full of toys, clothes and juvenile clutter.
