Anne Hathaway's Cottage & Gardens

Fantasic For Families

Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, the family home of Shakespeare’s bride-to-be, is the most romantic of the Shakespeare houses. The pretty thatched farmhouse with its stunning grounds and gardens, overflow with fragrant blooms and traditional shrubs during summer months.

The location where William courted his future bride is in Shottery, a hamlet within the parish of Stratford-upon-Avon. Just over one mile from the town centre, it can be easily accessed via a pleasant, well sign-posted footpath.

See for yourself the many original items of family furniture, including the Hathaway Bed, dating from Anne’s time and take in the beauty and tranquility of the charming cottage gardens.

Explore this 600-year old cottage and some of its original family furniture, including the Hathaway four-poster bed and the courting settle.

Enjoy nine acres of beautiful cottage gardens and heritage orchards, woodland walks and sculpture trail.
