This fifteenth-century, charming thatched cottage was the childhood home of Anne Hathaway, Shakespeare's sweet-heart and wife.Experienced guides explain the stories behind the Shakespeare connection and the history of some well-known English idioms such as "chairman of the board".There are nine acres of gardens and grounds to explore including a lavender maze, a woodland walk, the Shakespeare arboretum and a living willow cabin where you may listen to some of Shakespeare's sonnets.

I’d place Anne Hathaway’s house as a preferred Shakespeare place to visit. Try and go on a day when it isn’t raining. The woods and the nearby sculpture garden add to the enjoyment of visiting this historic place. The gardens are being restored over time...More

You need to buy a ticket first. It's a National Trust property, so if you look it up on their website you'll find whether you can pay for just the gardens without the house, which is sometimes the case.
