Good Wednesday morning from Anne Hathaway's Cottage - built 1463 - in Stratford-upon-Avon, England! @dppdi rightly asks - Is this the most beautiful thatched cottage in all of Britain? Certainly all this bloomin' rain is keeping the garden nice and lush! It is incredibly well preserved - you will not be disappointed seeing all the these homes. Gorgeous fireplaces, authentic period furniture, tudor wood beams and perfectly managed thatch. Anne, later William Shakespeare’s wife, was born here in 1556. This garden view alone is worth the visit. I love that Shakespeare left his bed to Anne upon his death, writing..“Item I gyve unto my wife my second best bed with the furniture”.. The SECOND best bed? This bequest is not as unusual as it might seem, and it's unlikely to have been intended as the snub that it appears to us today. In Shakespeare's time, a bed was an expensive and luxurious item, generally regarded as a valuable heirloom to be passed down the generations rather than given to a surviving spouse. Have a look around the bedrooms then head down to where the food was served in front of the roaring fire. The Tudor people often used honey to sweeten their food instead. Poor people ate a herb-flavoured soup called pottage which would be served with bread. It was made of peas, milk, egg yolks, breadcrumbs and parsley and flavoured with saffron and ginger. When the site was a farm the house was known as ‘Hewlands’ and the Hathaway family were very successful sheep farmers. The garden would have been a farmyard with some livestock and likely a herb garden. The very last Hathaway to own the cottage was Mary Baker, who sold the property to the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust in 1892. Wonderful shot by @dppdi 🇬🇧 Want your Photos of Britain to be featured?
