It's name is a bit misleading, as it wasn't actually owned by Anne Hathaway, but where Anne, the wife of William Shakespeare, lived as a child. Set in extensive gardens it's located in the village of Shottery, about 1 mile west of Stratford-upon-Avon. The earliest part of the cottage was built prior to the 15th century, and was known as Newlands Farm in Shakespeare's day, having more than 90 acres (36 hectares) of land attached to it. It was owned by the Hathaway family until 1846, when financial problems forced them to sell it. However, it was still occupied by them as tenants when it was acquired in 1892 by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.
Before stopping off in Stratford centre, we had a guided coach tour of the town and surrounding area, taking in the Hathaway Cottage, where we had a 20 minute stop off to grab a few photos, but not long enough to actually go inside. Couldn't decide which of these images to lead with, so uploaded in the order taken.

Single Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw 7, tweaked in Photomatix Pro 4 and Photoshop Elements 11.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.

What a lovely cottage. Never got to see it when we were up that way because it was so crowded.

V2 tells us more about the surroundings, so it's that one for me. Not that I dislike the house, of course!

V2 is the angle but I do like to see people around...
Happy memories of my student days. You could turn up on the day for a performance at the theatre and get standing tickets at the back for 2/6.

Two wonderful images of this gorgeous old house Trev. The point of view in image number one is more favourable, however the people for me are somewhat of a distraction.

My very first week-end away with mrs. salty (before she became mrs, s.Wink) was to Stratford. We stayed at a hotel (can't remember the name) where all the rooms were named after Shakespeare characters or pieces.
We stayed in The Midsummer Night's Dream room.
We had, needless to say, a dream weeek-endWink
The thing I remember about this cottage was how short the beds were, and the mattresses were sacks filled with hay.
