It is a bit of a stretch for me. It's actually Anne Hathaway's cottage. I used the maiden name of Anne to distinguish the cottage and gardens to be of Anne's family and not of her famous spouse, William Shakespeare.

A place I visited back in 2012, this is my favorite from the "Visit the Houses" tour. It is one of the touristic highlights in Stratsford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare's birthplace. For this specific site itself, the highlight for me was the garden.

I have another post with two more postcards of the Shaspeare houses, here.



  1. You had given me an idea:) Collect postcards of places I visit:)

  2. Hi Maria .. lovely place to visit and I'm so delighted you loved the gardens. I haven't seen her house .. but I have been to Stratford quite often .. cheers Hilary

  3. Maria, You are to be commended for doing so well A through G. I really liked the Gothenburg Cathedral for G and Anne Hathaway's cottage works for me for H. You surely have some fine cards. Have a great day!
