In perfect harmony with the historic 600-year-old cottage are nine acres of beautiful cottage gardens, overflowing with fragrant blooms and shrubs. Features include butterfly borders, a willow arbour, heritage orchards, woodland walks and a sculpture trail.
One of the best-known cottages in the world, this ‘blessed plot’ was home to Shakespeare’s muse. Anne Hathaway’s Cottage and Gardens, near Stratford-upon-Avon, displays a timeless beauty. It was here that the Bard is said to have wooed Anne, and the gardens still evoke this same romance. Wild borders overflow with fragrant blooms, and butterflies flit through the scented air. To best describe this very English scene, the words of John of Gaunt, in Shakespeare’s Richard II, might well suffice: “This other Eden, demi-paradise.”
