ANNE HATHAWAY'S COTTAGE FINE ORIGINAL ANTIQUE 19thCentury British
PAINTING REF 110224
Anne Hathaway's Cottage is a twelve-roomed farmhouse where
Anne Hathaway, the wife of William Shakespeare,
lived as a child in the village of Shottery, Warwickshire,
England, about 1 mile (1.6 km) west of Stratford-upon-Avon.
Spacious, and with several bedrooms, it is now set in extensive gardens.
The earliest part of the house was built prior to the 15th century;
the higher part is 17th century. The house was known as
Hewlands Farm in Shakespeare's day and had more than 90 acres
(36 hectares) of land attached to it; to call it a cottage is really a misnomer,
as it is much larger than the term usually means.
As in many houses of the period,
it has multiple chimneys to spread the heat evenly throughout the
house during winter. The largest chimney was used for cooking.
It also has visible timber framing, typical of vernacular Tudor architecture.
After the death of Hathaway's father, the cottage was owned by her
brother Bartholomew, and was passed down 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, which removed later
additions and alterations. In 1969 the cottage was badly damaged in a fire,
but was restored by the Trust. It is now open to the public as a museum.
