Our View

Snowshill Manor is a Cotswold manor house packed with extraordinary treasures brought together over a lifetime by the collector, architect and craftsman Charles Wade (1883-1956). Inside you can discover the eclectic items that he restored and displayed; from tiny toys, to samurai armour, and from musical instruments to fine clocks, thousands of objects are laid out for you to see, just as Mr Wade intended. The garden is the perfect place to unwind and explore hidden vistas, quiet corners and unexpected delights, including Charles Wade's uncomplicated home, the Priest's House. "Let nothing perish" was his motto, and his life was dedicated to doing just that. From the everyday to the extraordinary, you can discover his passion for craftsmanship, colour and design.

About the area

Discover Gloucestershire

Gloucestershire is home to a variety of landscapes. The Cotswolds, a region of gentle hills, valleys and gem-like villages, roll through the county. To their west is the Severn Plain, watered by Britain’s longest river, and characterised by orchards and farms marked out by hedgerows that blaze with mayflower in the spring, and beyond the Severn are the Forest of Dean and the Wye Valley.

Throughout the county you are never far away from the past. Neolithic burial chambers are widespread, and so too are the remains of Roman villas, many of which retain the fine mosaic work produced by Cirencester workshops. There are several examples of Saxon building, while in the Stroud valleys abandoned mills and canals are the mark left by the Industrial Revolution. Gloucestershire has always been known for its abbeys, but most of them have disappeared or lie in ruins. However, few counties can equal the churches that remain here. These are many and diverse, from the ‘wool’ churches in Chipping Campden and Northleach, to the cathedral at Gloucester, the abbey church at Tewkesbury or remote St Mary’s, standing alone near Dymock.
