Anne Hathaway's Cottage

Undoubtedly the most romantic of Shakespeare’s Houses. This charming childhood home of Anne Hathaway, Shakespeare’s future wife, served as the idyllic rendezvous where the world’s greatest dramatist wooed his beloved. Nestling in the quiet village of Shottery about a mile from Stratford-upon-Avon, sits Anne Hathaways Cottage the epitome of a typically ‘old England’ rural dwelling complete with thatched roof, cottage gardens and farmland. Tourists have been visiting the property since the second half of the 18th century and many famous writers have paid homage to this magical place with all its romantic connotations
