Nurture in Nature

Hands-on Activities at Anne Hathaway’s Cottage

Make and Take Family Activities from the Cottage Garden

Pop your welly boots on and head to Anne Hathaway Cottage to get stuck in making something special, using recycled materials and things found in Anne’s garden.

Set in the beautiful cottage garden of Anne Hathaway’s childhood home, this series of family-friendly activities have been created for hands, big and small, to enjoy making and learning something together, using items found in nature.

From wildflower-bombs to attract bees to your garden, and cakes for the birds, to fairy gardens and seasonal flower crowns come and enjoy getting closer to nature with your little one.
