Wordsworth House is a Georgian townhouse in Cockermouth, Cumbria, England. It is owned by the National Trust.

It was built in the mid-18th century. William Wordsworth was born in the house in 1770. The house is a Grade I listed building.[1] It is open to the public as a museum from March to October of each year.

In November 2009, Cumbria was hit by flooding. Wordsworth House was affected, but volunteers were able to save many of the artifacts.[2]
