Anne Hathaway’s Cottage

This world-famous cottage was by the standards of the day the substantial residence of a well-to-do yeoman farmer, and continued to be owned by Anne Hathaway's descendants until the late 19th century.
It's an immaculately maintained half timbered building, with a thatched roof and was the home of Anne Hathaway before she married Shakespeare in 1582. The interior holds a comely combination of period furniture, including a superb, finely carved four-poster bed. 
The garden is splendid too, crowded with bursting blooms in the summertime. The adjacent orchard and Shakespeare Tree Garden features a scattering of modern sculptures and over forty trees, shrubs and roses mentioned in the plays, with each bearing the appropriate quotation inscribed on a plaque. 

The best way to get to the cottage from the town centre is on the signposted footpath from Evesham Place.
