Very interesting home

A collection of all and sundry, clocks, samurai arms, and much, much more. The walk there affords one pastoral views of the local vale.

Am rating this as 'good', but having to rate this as 'average' as I don't think it was 'very good' and TripAdvisor don't have an option for just 'good'. The grounds were really nice. Inside was somewhat interesting, but I would rather it was more like a museum and actually labelled things. I know the owner didn't want it to... More

The manor is a modestly-sized house made of golden Cotswold stone and dates from the 16th century. The owner who donated it to the National Trust, Charles Wade, was an avid collector of an eclectic range of items. He believed that 'nothing should perish' and the thousands of items in the house are a tribute to his love of craftsmanship,... More

We've made many visits to the Cotswolds over the past decades but it's taken all that time to discover this little gem in the picturesque village of Snowshill. The lovely old manor house and attractive gardens are good in their own right, but the real joy of this place is Charles Wades eclectic and fascinating collection of 22,000 objects which... More

Having driven some way to see Snowshill manor we arrived 45 mins after opening time to find that all tickets to view the manor had gone for that day. We knew it was admittance by timed tickets only but didn't expect to find that tickets had gone for all 4 entries that day. There is no pre-booking opportunity. Felt really... More

A beautifully quirky NT property set in the heart of the Cotswolds. Not a fan of timed tickets, but we could see why with the rooms being so crammed full of the previous owner's collections. A maze of rooms packed with an eclectic mix of items from Japanese ivory carvings to bicycles and truncheons. The gardens are equally an interesting... More

Hi, I organise a hiking group and we decided to go on a walk through the Cotswolds. The scenery was stunning and after an enjoyable 6 mile we had planned to go to the Snowshill Manor for a cake and tea before continuing. When we arrived however, the establishment had other plans. They wanted all of the group (16 people)... More

A must if you are in the Cotswolds. Unique place. Much quieter after 14hrs. You could go back to this place a hundred times, and still see something different every time. I will certainly return. Made the mistake of visiting when it was half term. Due to the size of some of the viewing points of the many rooms and... More

This property is interesting because it's so different from the typical National Trust properties. Although it's a large manor house with large gardens, it's really about the unique collection of bric-a-brac built up by Charles Wade. It makes for a very different experience and is fascinating and something that our daughter really enjoyed - apart from the collection of lifesize... More

I'm torn between my instinct of wanting to see everything organized and labeled and seeing the collection as the belongings of a hoarder and that of my enjoyment of seeing the unexpected! There is a vast range of different objects - musical instruments, childrens toys, armour, shoes, jewellery, bikes, prams, and so on. My favourites were a sewing kit and... More
