The Garden Landscape Guide

Snowshill Manor Garden

A Tudor house with a c1700 façade and an Arts and Crafts garden. Like William Morris, the designers, Charles Wade and Baillie Scott, admired the craftsmanship of medieval England. Snowshill has a series of garden enclosures with a wide range of ornaments and imaginative planting. Many of the ornaments are painted 'Wade blue' (a soft powdery blue) which harmonises with the Cotswold stone and the blue/purple planting theme.

Snowshill, nr Broadway, Gloucestershire, England, WR12 7JU

Late March to October. Wednesday to Sunday. Open 11am to 5:30pm.

    My husband and I went this summer 2012 and we were stunned with the beauty of the garden! So much so, that we didn't have time to visit the house. I am an artist and my husband is a keen amateur photographer. Everywhere you look there are stunning views and beautiful borders as well as interesting garden buildings with the wonderful house as a backdrop.
    We do recommend the buggy ride as it is a long walk from the car park.
    We have some lovely photos of the garden which reflect the true beauty of the garden.
    This is not a garden to be missed and we think it is our favourite garden of all in England!

    I have to agree with Adam. A fascinating house a pleasant garden but not in the first league.

    The rating reflects the garden. The house is worth 4!

    I understand that the garden is looking slightly 'au natrel' because (and this will surprise you) it is only looked after by ONE full time gardener! There is a seasonal gardener too, and a whole group of volunteers who do great things, but can you imagine just being the only one to look after such a place. It's not surprising that it looks as though it could do with more attention. I think it's a credit to the poor gardener and actually it's not bad at all when you understand.

    The most fascinating and enjoyable places we visited in the Cotswolds, we loved the natural setting and felt placed back in time. The garden was uncrowded, fabulous stone walls and the dovecote so attractive. For anyone who loves the country this is a must visit.

    A charming house with a pleasant garden, but no great shakes. I think it needs more money spent on upgrading the plantings if the NT wish to stump cup the cash!
