Snowshill Manor

Wade described his garden at Snowshill as ‘man’s rest, children’s fairyland, bird’s orchestra, butterfly’s bouquet’ and to enjoy the garden, visitors must enter into the same spirit. The National Trust has played its part with quotes from Wade dotted around the garden.

Influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement, the organic gardens are laid out as a series of rooms.

Climb up and down steps and find the Armillary Court, the Well Court, a lily pond and Wolf’s Cove – a model village with ‘houses, roads, carts, caravans, bridges…’

Don’t miss Wade’s bedroom in the Priest’s House. Wade often slept here, using the Manor to entertain his numerous guests.

There’s a 400 metre walk from the car park to the house – there is a buggy service.

The garden is filled with steps and steep slopes making it unsuitable for wheelchair users.

The gardens are usually open from mid-March until the beginning of December – check the website for details
