It is such a quirky place we couldn’t resist another visit. Charles Wade used to stay with his grandmother and when he was seven he had the opportunity to handle some of the items she collected which started his life long passion for collecting over 22,000 items. His motto was ‘let nothing perish’. During the First World War he saw... More

Interesting old house and gardens of an eccentric early-20th-C architect and sugar heir who was clearly bonkers. Basically the house is a collection of thousands of historic, anthropological and artistic bits of stuff, which was interesting to look at for an hour or so - there was enough variety to interest our kids (10 and 8) including old clothes for...

The car park is around a ten minute uphill walk from the manor but if you need assistance there is a buggy ferrying people back and fore each 20 minutes or so. This Easter we visited here and out of all the 5 properties we saw within the 5 days of NT visits this was by far the most unusual... More

Snowshill Manor is a 16th century building which is crammed full of a fascinating collection of curiosities defined by their craftsmanship brought together by Charles Wade who bought the house to show them off in 1919. The National Trust has exhibited the vast collection with enough space to walk from room to room with always something unusual to catch the... More

This site gets very busy and we had to wait an hour and a quarter for timed entry to the house. Although there are other buildings to look at e.g. the priests house where Wade actually lived etc there is not really enough to fill the time if it is chilly. So time your visit carefully so you could maybe... More

Snowhill is a fairly modest manor house and garden but well worth a visit for its very quirky collections. It is not really a museum, more a random collection of bicycles, spinning wheels, samurai armour, ships models, lacquer cabinets and so on. Not a place to keep visiting but worth a detour if you are in the area.

The walk from the car park to the manor is beautiful with fantastic views over the hills. I found the house very strange but interesting as it is full of all sorts of oddities and collections. The old owners living quarters in little rooms outside the house are intriguing. I found it all very strange but worth visiting

We had a guided tour of the Manor and thoroughly enjoyed the visit. Our guide was well informed and pleasant to deal with. Lots of additional pieces of information and she answered every question from the group very positively.

This beautiful old manor set in the heart of the Cotswolds is stuffed full of all sorts collected by the eccentric owner for years. So much so that he chose to live in a little cottage giving the manor over entirely to his collection. Not much can be told about the individual items, as he tended to buy in job... More
