Snowshill Manor

Two miles from beautiful Broadway lies Snowshill Manor.  We visited recently (at our third attempt) and met up with my God Daughter and her family.DSC_0052.JPGI’ve only ever heard good things about Snowshill and it didn’t disappoint.   It’s a sixteenth century country house, best known for its twentieth century owner, Charles Paget Wade, an eccentric man who amassed an enormous collection of objects that interested him. He gave the property to the National Trust in 1951, and his collection is still housed there.

The upstairs of the house wasn’t open on the day we visited, as the National Trust had already begun to close up in preparation for the winter months.

DSC_0041.JPGEach time I visit a National Trust property for the first time, I invariably declare it my favourite.  This year, my favourite had been Greys Court … until I arrived at Snowshill.

I already have a return date pencilled in for the Spring.

  1. I checked out the website first – amazing. I must admit my first thoughts were clutter … but having a good look around, there’s a lot of history held in those collections. I think seeing that model village in the spring will be fascinating.

  2. I’m doing lots of blog reading catch up today (in case you haven’t noticed LOL), and I feel like I’ve been on a little vacation with all your wonderful posts about places I’ve never visited. Your descriptions and photography are wonderful!
