Visitor reception & shop

There is level access with a bell push for staff to assist you if required. There is a sloping pathway from Cottage Lane or a short level path from the Blue Badge and coach park. An accessible toilet with baby-changing facilities can be found outside and to the side of reception.


The building is not fully accessible to visitors due to entrance steps and uneven floors. Regrettably wheelchairs are not suitable for use within the cottage due to steps, narrow corridors and lack of turning space. An interactive virtual presentation of the cottage is available from visitor reception. Large print guides are available.


The grounds are easy to navigate with many wide, sloping pathways and occasional seating. The Woodland Walk offers a 20 minute trail which is possible for assisted wheelchairs and pushchairs in dry weather. A courtesy wheelchair is available.

Eating and drinking

The Cottage Garden Cafe is open throughout the year and is located opposite the cottage across Cottage Lane. An accessible toilet is located next to the café up a short ramp.

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.
