Snowshill Manor
Snowshill Manor
Snowshill Manor is a National Trust property located in the village of Snowshill. The manor house is a typical Cotswold house, made from local stone; the main part of the house dates from the 16th century.

Between 1539 and 1919 it had a number of tenants and owners until it was purchased by Charles Paget Wade, an architect, artist-craftsman, collector, poet and heir to the family fortune. He restored the property, living in the small cottage in the garden and using the manor house as a home for his collection of objects.

Today, the main attraction of the house is perhaps the display of Wade's collection. During the first half of the twentieth century, Wade amassed an enormous and eclectic collection of objects reflecting his interest in craftsmanship until, in 1951, he gave the Manor together the contents of his collection to the National Trust. The objects in the collection include 26 suits of Japanese samurai armour dating from the 17th and 19th centuries; bicycles; toys; musical instruments and more.
