This was the house of a true eccentric. A lovely old country house built from soft yellow Cotswold stone, set in quiet Cotswold countryside. What a dream. The main (very beautiful) house is stuffed, and I mean stuffed, with fascinating items. Apparently, he bought the house not to live in but to house his massive collection of unusual stuff. We...

Although it was a dark and gloomy day, we were made very welcome here. There's such a lot to see, and I should think that you could visit again and again and always find something new that you missed before. I would love to return in the spring.

A further National Trust visit, but oh so different to the regular "stately home". An mix of weirdness, eccentricity and downright bizarre - but extremely enjoyable to see Mr. Wade's lifetime of collecting. Beautiful garden and location too. We visited on a rainy October lunchtime and due to lateness of the season and the weather we were able to tour... More

Liked the look of this NT house due to Mr Wade and his eclectic collection of odd items. We arrived about 10:54 with a small queue already formed and offered a free 12;30pm tour of the house which was very good and informative. About 45 mins. Prior the children enjoyed a quiz around the grounds to win some sweeties. Would... More

This National Trust property is set in rolling Cotswold countryside. It is near Broadway and attracts a lot of visitors. The day we went, a midweek in June, the sun was shining and the car park was full and then some!! Parking is a nightmare and we were lucky that someone left just as we got into the main car... More

I have never seen such a wonderful collection of assorted interesting, historical and bizarre objects in one place! Wandering from room to room over 4 floors, we were blown away by the sheer number of sometimes completely indiscriminate collections. Well worth a visit, including the 'outhouses' and picturesque gardens. The Manor will live in my memory for a very long... More

A fascinating visit to a country house "Museum" created by an avid, though undiscriminating collector, who was most probably slightly loopy. There is so much to see, piled together rather as in a rather fine bric-a-brac shop. One male volunteer guide was somewhat patronising when I expressed disappointment that a beautiful octagonal Chinese dish had not been sympathetically restored: "... More

My wife stumbled across the advert for this place, and all I thought was 'just another big house'. How wrong. A fantastic little country house full to the brim of artefacts from all over. A real collectors dream. This place could easily have been an inspiration for movie props and gadgets.

The last owner, Charles Wade, was a truly astonishing collector of allsorts of eclectic ephemera. The pieces are spread around his house in a totally, but completely charming, manner and can ranges from very complicated clocks to so simple carvings from bone. There are also a number of carved ships which are really intricate and fabulously carved. He was also... More

This arts and crafts style manor house is well worth a visit. There are so many interesting treasures to see in the house. They are all displayed in a sympathetic and authentic way. You will probably need a return visit to see everything. The gardens are lovely and well worth a good walk around. The teas rooms offer a good... More
