Eating and Drinking

The Cottage Garden Cafe is open throughout the year and is located opposite the site entrance, across Cottage Lane. Our seasonal cafe - the Pea Shed - stands within the grounds of Anne Hathaway's Cottage & Gardens and is approached via a garden path with outdoor bench seating and visitor toilets nearby. 


Unfortunately the building is unsuitable for wheelchair users and visitors with impaired mobility due to entrance steps and uneven floors. However there is a 3D virtual tour of the cottage in the visitor reception.   Foreign language and large print guides are available.
