Hidcote Manor Garden

Hidcote Manor Garden

About 8 miles from Harvington you'll find the perfect day out for any gardener - Hidcote Manor Garden.

Started in 1907 by Major Lawrence Johnston on land bought by his mother, Hidcote took 7 years to create - and a further 34 years and a team of 12 gardeners to perfect

The gardens are laid out in a series of "rooms" each with a different theme such as the Topiary Garden or the Fuchsia Garden.

Fittingly there's even a garden dedicated to the Major's mother who made everything possible

Well worth a visit for garden fans.

About 8 miles away. [Find out more...]

Anne Hathaway's Cottage

Anne Hathaway's Cottage

The deep thatch of Anne Hathway's Cottage is just one of the original features that you can see in this beautifully preserved house.

It was the home of William Shakespeare's wife, Anne Hathaway, and she was living here when Shakespeare came courting!

The house is furnished with authentic Elizabethan furniture, and is a great way to see how a wealthy farmer lived in the 1500s.

The cottage was built in the 16th Century, but the oldest part of the house is a pair of curved oak beams which date from 1463.

Mary Arden's House And Countryside Museum

Mary Arden's House And Countryside Museum

Mary Arden's House is an accurate re-creation of a working Tudor farm, and it was the childhood home of Mary Arden - none other than Shakespeare's mum!

Today you can try your hand at herding geese or feeding goats, admire the rare breeds and enjoy the falconry displays before going to the cafe for some refreshments.

About 9 miles away. [Find out more...]

Harvard House

Harvard House

The beautiful carved facade of Harvard House in Main Street in Stratford-upon-Avon is well worth a look when you are visiting the town.
