This event will be held at the atmospheric Halsway Manor, Crowcombe, on the edge of the Quantock Hills, at the heart of Coleridge's Somerset. You'll find the atmosphere relaxed and informal, and if you wish you can join in with the programme of optional outings and walks. Our aim is to make these weekends enjoyable and accessible for anyone with an interest in Coleridge.
