A Cotswold manor set in hillside gardens; a fanciful world filled with unlikely treasures
Charles Paget Wade’s passion for craftsmanship, colour and design began when he was just 7 years old. His motto was ‘let nothing perish’, and his life was dedicated to finding, restoring and enjoying objects of beauty, both everyday and extraordinary.
He packed his treasures into the Cotswold manor house which he bought and renovated for the purpose. From tiny toys to Samurai armour, musical instruments to fine clocks, thousands of treasures are laid out just as Mr Wade intended.
The manor nestles in an intimate Arts and Crafts-style terraced garden with hidden vistas and quiet corners.
