Autumn in Snowshill | Cotswolds Travel Guides

Cotswolds travel guide to Snowshill

On our second day of our Autumn visit to the Cotswolds we wanted to go somewhere we hadn’t been before so we headed out to the small but pretty village of Snowshill. Situated on the edge of a valley the many honey stone cottages face the centre of the village which has a pretty Victorian church.

Heading out of the village there is a beautiful National Trust property called Snowshill Manor. It is a sixteenth century country house surrounded by beautiful gardens including an orchard and glasshouse. I can honestly say this is one of the nicest NT properties I’ve visited with a surprise round every corner. Unfortunately we arrived too late to visit the house so we just opted to visit the gardens. Incidentally I think that the start and end of the day are the best time to visit National Trust properties because there are less visitors.

Charles Wade collected many beautiful items and even had his own model village at Snowshill Manor. The gardens house so many delightful things such as this beautiful clock, a dove cote and a sun dial. The gardens are set over different levels, each housing it’s own surprises.
