Snowshill Manor And Garden
Snowshill is the unconventional home of the eccentric Charles Wade, who delighted in creating a stage for his life and passions.
The garden is the perfect place to unwind and explore hidden vistas and unexpected delights, including Wolf’s Cove model village and the Priest’s House.
In the manor house are Charles Wade’s eclectic collections. He was an architect and artist who dedicated his life to collecting, having inheriting his family’s sugar estates. We maintain the atmospheric rooms he created with low lighting and few labels. From tiny toys to Samurai armour, and musical instruments to bicycles, thousands of objects are laid out for you to see just as Mr Wade intended.
‘Let nothing perish’ was Wade’s motto, and at Snowshill you can discover his passion for craftsmanship, colour and design, from the everyday to the extraordinary.
