“Always a fascinating visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

This is our fourth visit to Snowshill and we never tire of it. There is so much to see and take in. A wonderful collection of objects from all over the world,every room is packed to capacity and it is great to explore all the display cabinets. Plenty to interest everyone of all ages. The staff have a fund of knowledge. Set in a lovely part of the Cotswolds this is a must see!
It does involve quite a long walk from the car park however a buggy is provided for the less able although the property is on several levels with steps so probably not the ideal place for disabled visitors.
Restaurant on site with a reasonable choice of lunches perhaps a little pricey for the size of portions but food of nice quality.

“Strange but amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

This is not your typical National Trust house but it is truly worth visiting! A beautiful manor house and stunning gardens, but it is the contents of the house that are going to see. A true eclectic collection of 'stuff' from the bizarre to the amazing. The collection of Mr Wade is a real horde which delighted and fascinated us. The staff were informative and helpful. A great day!

“If you only visit one historical attraction in the Cotswolds, make it Snowshill!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

Just having visited Snowshil Manor, what a wonderful and unique place to visit. A manor house dedicated to housing the eclectic artifacts of craftsmanship all collected by one man. There was so much to see, it was hard to know where to look first. The guides were all informative and enthusiastic. We could have stayed for hours! The gardens were an utter delight and no doubt helped by the wonderful sunshine on the day we visited.

Would certainly return and happily recommend.

“Great day out for adults and kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

My family are members of the National Trust, we usually opt for the properties with lots of ground for walking and picnics, the children tend to find the houses a bit boring. Saying this Snowshill Manor is fantastic for kids, the gardens are lovely and the house has a collection of 20,000 plus items from all over the world which is fascinating.

If you check the NT website and get an fun / activity day as well the grounds and house offer a great day out for the family.
