As part of a July ramble through the Cotswolds, I have the opportunity to visit either Snowshill Manor or Sudeley Castle before moving on to Cheltenham. (If I were to try to see both Snowshill and Sudeley, I would only be able to devote about an hour to each and I suspect I would feel rushed.) I will have seen such places as Kelmscott Manor and Hidcote Manor on previous days. I have visited a number of castles and stately homes on previous visits to England. I tend to like things that are authentic and not overly commercialized. For example, I much preferred Chartwell and Sissinghurst to Hever which seemed to be trying way to hard.
