Wordsworth House in Cockermouth has had its busiest visitor season for five years.
More than 29,000 people visited to the childhood home of the world famous poet between March and October.
Two special exhibitions were held, which saw a visitor increase of 15 percent on the previous year.
The house was affected by flooding in 2015 along with the rest of the town, but reopened in April 2016 following extensive repairs.
"Both the flood in 2009 and 2015 did hit us very hard, there was an awful lot of work for the staff team over both of those winters.
"So it's taken a little while to get back on track, but it's really nice to sort of feel we're on an upward trajectory now with that."
