Treasure Seeking at Snowshill Manor and Garden

In the summer we visited The National Trust’s Snowshill Manor and Garden in Gloucestershire. Everywhere you look there are treasures to be found.

This is the former home of eclectic collector, architect Charles Wade. He bought the property in 1919 and filled it with hundreds of objects. Explore the house and discover a vast collection, from model boats and Samurais to an attic filled with bicycles and prams. Wade gave each room a name, a theme and a certain purpose. However, he wanted it to be a treasure trove you explored, so he did not label his collection like in a traditional museum. Fascinated by anything hand-crafted and made with skill, the house is still presented as he planned.
