Make a date to visit Ullswater which inspired William Wordsworth to pen his most famous poem, ‘I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud’. After a visit to Glencoyne Park by William and Dorothy Wordsworth on 15 April 1802, something of a phenomena also began as each spring nature emerges as a crowd of golden daffodils.

Come and see the lake and the trees fluttering in the breeze and visit Glencoyne Bay, the place that inspired William Wordsworth to pen his most famous poem for yourself.
