Snowshill Things to Do

    Take a few minutes and stroll around the village. When you get to the end of the road you head downhill on a walking path that leads you farther and farther down into the vale. As you go you pass sheep, lots of sheep. Sheep and a Jeep, even. We walked maybe a mile and a half and decided that at our advanced age it might be best to start back uphill if we were to finish by midnight. After arriving back at the street we retired to the pub where we rubbed elbows with the locals and had lunch and a pint.

    Like most National Trust properties in the UK, they provide a 'Tearoom' where you can sample a typical English Tea (with cake, scones, jam and fresh cream) as well as freshly prepared sandwiches and sometimes hot meals. This particular Tearoom had all that.

    We just had sandwiches and tea and these were very enjoyable at around 9 Pounds Sterling for both of us. This included a 50p discount per person which is obtainable by request at the Ticket Office for those arriving at Snowshill Manor on foot.

    Unfortunately, we chose the Easter Bank Holiday Saturday to visit Snowshill Manor and it was crowded in the Tearoom and there was no chance of an outside seat on the Terrace on this warm day. We had to settle for a table inside.

    As an alternative, you could try the Snowshill Arms Pub in the centre of the village before or after visiting the Manor (see my other tip)

    Favorite Dish: Good choice of open sandwiches with various tasty fillings

    It is the only pub in town. Drive up, parking in back. Go inside and find a place to sit or stand. Order at the bar and enjoy. Fireplace is stoked, the locals are friendly and they'll even help you play the local pokey if you so desire.

    Favorite Dish: Can't remember exactly what we had, but it is typical pub faire, and of course comes with chips.

    The pub has a nice Beer Garden for sitting out back in warmer weather, enjoying a bar meal and pint of local brew.......and imagine, Bridget Jones could have sat where you are.

    The Church and Village Green, etc. from the movie are opposite the pub

    Favorite Dish: Didn't actually eat here

Snowshill Warnings and Dangers

    When entering the US your customs declaration asks if you have visited a farm on your trip. The purpose of this questions is to prevent farm diseases such as foot and mouth disease from entering the country. If you check yes on the form be prepared for extra hassle at customs as they will most likely run your baggage through a sniffing machine.
    So, other than lying on your declaration, which I would never encourage, you might wash those boots in bleach water or some strong soap and disinfectant before packing.
    This may prevent you from having those $200 LL Beans confiscated by customs

    Littleworth Wood is part of the National Trust land surrounding Snowshill village and we walked through it on our circular hike from Laverton to Snowshill Manor.
