What a treasure this amazing house turned out to be. We were stunned by the variety and range of items in this astounding collection put together by Charles Wade. Imagine, just buying a Victorian House to store your collectables in! and choosing to live in the adjacent "Priest House"! The National Trust have done an amzinf job in preserving what... More

So after the first war, a wealthy guy had so much stuff (sorry " a big and valuable collection of artefacts") that he bought a ruined house in the Cotswold's to keep it in whilst he lived in the stables. Then he revived the house and built a nice little Arts & Crafts garden around it. All are as he... More

What an amazing place and a vey interesting story. You must listen to the story about the owner before you enter the manor. An amazing collection of very different things.

This National Trust Property is a manor which housed Charles Wade eclectic collection of 22,000 items, everything from bicycles to samurai warrior armour. I have to admit there is a lot to see. Some of which is fascinating either by the sheer size of the collection or interesting objects. He seems to particularly like ships and objects from the Far... More

The house is just manor, interesting enough, but the visit majors on the 22,000 items in the owner's collection. A strange hotchpotch of items, which will fascinate some, but leave most cold.

There is so much to see in this house full of Charles Wade's wonderful collection of eclectic items. You need to take the time to peer into cabinets and rooms to find unusual treasures - often tricky when the house is busy. So it's worth return visits, because you will see something new every time. If your children are curious... More

I had fond memories of this house from many years ago. It didn't seem quite as good this time. On reflection, I think it is because the collection has been organised and ordered since, so it doesn't show all its idiosyncracies. These are clearer in the Priest's House. Still worth a visit, especially for the geeky.

Car park is some way from the manor but they do have a buggy service for those unable to do the walk. The gardens are compact, well laid out and pleasant to stroll round. The manor is built in the Arts and Crafts style and is a veritable treasure trove of almost anything vaguely collectable. Model ships, bicycles, musical instruments,... More

Mr. Wade was quite the collector! We enjoyed seeing all the "different and unusual" things in his collection - especially enjoying the antique bicycles and Samurai armour. The gardens and dove house were also very interesting. We enjoyed a nice cup of coffee and scone at the tea shop and enjoyed watching the children play outside in the nice play... More
