He was good friends with the Wordsworth's and it is believed that they may have been on their way home to Grasmere, from a stay with Clarkson when Dorothy and William saw the host of daffodils on the shores of Ullswater.

Eusemere Lodge has been finished to a very high level and has grounds which reach to the shore of Ullswater.
