It hasn't changed one little bit from when I visited over 30 years ago ;-)! Goodness I loved this place, it felt like being in the XVIth century! I took some of my first ever photographs there with my first ever camera, a small Kodak my grand parents gave me for my 10th birthday! Thanks for the walk down memory lane today!

This is a beauty, LOL. And it would be a beauty even if it did not have the association with Anne Hatheway and Shakespeare.

Nice images! We visited there back in 2000. My husband was very impressed by the number of famous people who had visited there in the past.

I do love a romantic tale Lauren, what a delightful thatched hide-away!
P.s. From Melbourne to China.. that's quite a change!

It still looks in such good condition despite its age.

Gorgeous. Hard to believe it's that old. When I saw Anne Hathaway my first thought was of our American actress. I think that's her name. :)

One of the most famous thatched-roof homes in the world, wouldn't you say?
