What else is on?

This picturesque English thatched cottage dates back over 600-years and was the home to countless family generations, eventually being the home Shakespeare's bride-to-be Anne Hathaway. 

This is where the young Shakespeare would have visited Anne during the early part of their relationship and is a perfect retreat to explore the famous Shakespeare/Hathaway love story.

Feel yourself slip back in time among the acres of pretty cottage gardens, orchards, woodland walks and sculpture trails. Inside the cottage you'll even see original family furniture, including the four-poster bed and courting settle.

A visit to Anne Hathaway's Cottage is the chance to be at one with the history and romance that surrounds the life and works of William Shakespeare, and is most certainly the perfect choice for a day out in Stratford-upon-Avon.
