Anne Hathaway's Cottage
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The hamlet of Shottery is now almost part of Stratford upon Avon, but in Elizabethan times it was acompletely separate village. Footpaths lead from central Stratford to Shottery, perhaps following in the footsteps of Willliam Shakespeare himself, who came to Shottery to court his future wife, Anne Hathaway.
The small thatched cottage that was Anne's home before her marriage has been preserved as it was in her childhood. Say the words 'English cottage' and most people would conjure up an image of a thatched roof, timber-framed dwelling with a bit of garden in front, a picure of timeless England if ever there was one. A cottage like this one.
