Spring at Snowshill

Snowshill Snowdrops

Snowshill Manor awakes from its winter slumber on Mon 13 Mar 2017.

House re-opens

The Manor house re-opens with timed tickets to explore some of the 22,000 items housed in the rabbit warren of rooms.

Snowdrops and daffodils (March)

Spring is a special time of year for Snowshill, as its the time when the blooms start to appear. The snowdrops make way for the bright yellow daffodils in the orchard and the blossom comes out on the apple trees.

Lambing season (March)

In the fields between visitor reception and the garden, you'll see Spring lambs bounding about, bleeting and setting the Spring scene here at Snowshill. Our tenant shepherd looks after the lambs.

As the weather gets warmer and the days get longer, it's a great time to enjoy the far-reaching views across the Cotswolds too, with a new circular walk for you to enjoy.

Charles Wade's influence

Wolf's Cove model village is coming along nicely, with the boating lake built and the team of crafts men and women working on bringing Charles Wade's vision to life again.#

This month sees the launch of a new display of Mr Wade's World War I drawings in the Manor house, an impressive selection of original sketches.

You can find out more about Mr Wade and his collection of clocks with our Talking Clocks event on 26 March. More details on our what's on pages.
