A fascinating historical collection of virtually anything in a beautiful old house and garden. Charles Wades passion for collecting is summed up in this house.

An old manor house full of artefacts of every description from penny farthing bicycles to samurai costumes. Beautiful peaceful gardens with doves and great views over the surrounding countryside. Well worth a visit for these things alone. However the best thing about this place is the staff and volunteers. A very warm welcome with a thank you for supporting us... More

WOW, what do you say, if Aladdin had a cave it would not be a patch on this. Firstly the house itself is superb and then you step into a maze of rooms just brimming with items collected by Charles Wade over many years, each room has a theme covering just about every item you could imagine, plus many you...

A beautiful manor house set in delightful gardens with plenty of places to sit and enjoy the vista. As with other reviewers you need a sunny day to enjoy the gardens as the sunshine brings out the views the best. The house is beautiful and crammed full of 'stuff' collected by the eccentric Charles Wade who seemed to collect anything... More

We walked the uphill walk from Broadway to Snowshill Manor, A National Trust House. The gardens were lovely and peaceful, surrounded by lovely scenery. The cafe was good and there was plenty of seating outside as it was a lovely day. The best bit was the museum. It was amazing and I am NOT usually a museum person. Charles Wade... More

The grounds and the gardens surrounding Snowshill manor are just as much fun to explore on a sunny day as the manor-house itself which is quite a bizarre experience. Entry is free for National Trust members and around £10.20 per adult (£5.10 per child or £25.60 for a family). In a nut-shell : great on a sunny day for anyone,... More

Snowshill is stunningly beautiful on a sunny day. We parked up 10 minutes before the property opened, and although there was a queue it was relatively fast moving. As a member it would be appreciated if we did not have to wait behind non-members paying by cash or card, and being given the hard-sell on membership, as this inevitably slows... More

From the 15 minute talk at the start of our tour giving us the background of Charles Wade’s life we knew this was going to be an interesting visit. Charles Wade’s fascination with objects of craftsmanship started with one cabinet and grew to such an extent he purchased Snowshill to store his treasured collection. He himself lived in a small...

The house and surrounding buildings are beautiful in appearance from outside. The gardens and views are stereotypically "English Countryside" and lovely however the house itself is a very strange experience. The positives are that the staff are very knowledgable and extremely helpful, the restaurant was well stocked and provided some wonderful aromas. If you are expecting a classically maintained country... More

The manor house is a cabinet of treasures sympathetically displayed under natural light.A fantastical treasure trove to bring out a child's delight in all of us.So sympathetically displayed for a visitor's pleasure.Do try to visit its magic
