The most romantic of all the Shakespearean properties, is Anne Hathaway's Cottage, which lies in the beautiful hamlet of Shottery, just outside Stratford-Upon-Avon. The cottage can still be reached by the footpaths over the fields, as it was in Shakespeare's time, when he came to court his future wife. This is where Anne Hathaway spent her childhood and youth, until at the age of eighteen, William Shakespeare and Anne were married in 1582. Today it is called a cottage, but in the sixteenth century it was a substantial farmhouse, known as Hewlands. The cottage was owned, and lived in by the Hathaway family and their descendants, until the late nineteenth century, when it was purchased by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.

There has been a fortification of some description on this site since 914. The earliest military strategist to make use of the area's defensive features was Ethelfleda, daughter of Alfred the Great. It was originally built to protect the small hill top settlement of Warwick from Danish invaders threatening Mercia, the central Anglo-Saxon kingdom.It was William the Conqueror who built the first true castle here, building a motte (from the French word for moat) and bailey fort here in 1068. William appointed one of his followers, Henry de Beaumont as Castellan. At some point during this stewardship, de Beaumont changed his name to de Newburgh, and five of his descendants duly followed in their forefathers' footsteps. The Castle continued to be passed through noble families until 1978, when it was purchased from Lord Brooke by the Tussauds group.
