The road from Chipping Campden to Snowshill took us along little lanes bordered by rock walls and hedges. We were able to find a nice parking lot between the village and the National Trust property.
A Fete was going on in the village center and some locals recommended that we go there before going to Snowshill Manor and Gardens which is a National Trust Property. Because we took that advice we missed the last opening for viewing the Manor House but we were still able to walk about the gardens.
The church was in the very center of the village and on a high point of the village.
The walk from the National Trust Manor property entrance to the Manor had some beautiful vistas to enjoy.
The Manor grounds are beautifully landscaped.
This is a view of the back of the Manor.
On our way back to our cottage we stopped at the beautiful fields of lavender.
Our visit to Snowshill ended our first Saturday in England and our first full day in the Cotswolds. On Sunday we had plans to take a little trip out of the Cotswolds to “see a fine lady upon a white horse”.

Oh my – those lavender fields are so beautiful – I can almost smell the beautiful scent! Lovely pictures Ellen!
Time stood still there! Hope it stays that way forever.
The striations in those lavender fields are so lovely and each scene is more charming than the former. Love this darling town with all its charm and beauty.
thanks so much for sharing your time in Snowhill. It was one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited and your pictures took me back to June, 1988 when Dave and I were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary.
The church, the manor house, the small homes – all so beautiful and a such a wander through a long past time. My favorites of your pictures.
I love that English towns like this remain timeless in their quaint charm! Please don’t “burst my bubble” by telling me there were high rise condos in the background here that you didn’t photograph, Ellen 🙂 The lavender fields are erogenous! I love lavender and have soem growing in my backyard.
The highest thing in this village was the church tower. No condos anywhere to be seen, Pat!
Such historic and quaint charm in these photos! Love everything from the rock and brick walls, the manor, the church and gardens and sheep grazing in the distance to the fields of lavender.
Have heard the cotswolds are lovely – and looking at your pics, I would love it there! Heather is one of my favorite flowers.
I LOVE the nursery rhyme come to ‘life’ !
The scenes are so ‘old country’ different from what we are used to here… beautiful!
Those cottage are so cute. Ellen, have you ever heard of Lilliput Lane cottages, that I think are made in Coltswold? You would probably really enjoy collecting them. I only collect the their Christmas cottages, but all of their cottages are fashioned after real historical buildings in England. Anyway, those cottage remind me of some of the Lilliput Lane cottages.
