A place to come back to Now owned by the National Trust, Baddesley Clinton was the home of the Ferrers family for 500 years. Much of the house you see today was built by Henry Ferrers, a lawyer, diarist and antiquarian, in the late 1500s. The house was a sanctuary not only for the Ferrers family, but also for persecuted Catholics who were hidden from priest hunters in its secret hiding places during the 1590s. - Start your visit with an introductory talk at the front of the house (last entrance to the house is 4.30pm) to find out more about the fascinating and unexpected stories Baddesley Clinton has to offer. - Finish by enjoying the delightful menu in the Barn Restaurant or find something to remember your day with, in our gift shop. Come back soon...We're open all year, except 24 and 25 December, so pop back to see the changing seasons in the gardens, or for one of our events. The shop, gardens and restaurant are open 9-5pm and the house opens at 11am.

Lovely house, original 'game' with the different scents in the rooms, pretty garden and gem of a church slightly off the main grounds but somehow this one didn't do it for us... it didn't have Charlecote's grandness or Packwood's charms and just came across as...More

A small and not overwhelming National Trust Building. If you want to get a taste of how the folks of means lived in years past, this is good for a quick stop. The gardens are impeccable and café is pretty decent. Be wary of the...More

As I live quite close to the NT property, this was not my first visit. Previous visits were some time ago so we thought we should re-visit. In my opinion this NT property represents all that is good about the NT. Firstly the house is...More

Really good, not pompous feels like a well loved family home. Large grounds never feels over crowded.

A nice place to visit. We visited on a warm Saturday and it wasn't too busy so we were able to get many nice photos. The small gardens are pretty, the woodland walk around the lake is short but very peaceful, and the kitchen garden...More

A smallish property surrounded by a moat with a very interesting history. This is not a property that will take a huge amount of time to look around and the gardens are not extensive. It is however definitely worth a visit

Definitely worth a visit. They provided a really engaging guided tour of the house. Some lovely stories of the family who lived there and it's chequered history over many centuries lots of intrigue and priest holes. Unusual to see a house with a moat still...More

Really enjoyed our visit to this moated Manor House. The weather wasn't great, but it didn't spoil our enjoyment. The house is very interesting and the room guides very knowledgeable. Lots to see. The gardens are lovely with some spectacular peonies in flower, lovely borders...More

Worthwhile. Lots of history. Nice Cafes here and at nearby Packwood House which is very much worth a visit.

If you want to see the church as well as the gardens 3 hours minimum, not a place to be rushed, take it slowly and savour it.
Is it worth me travelling up from Liverpool?

It is a beautiful place but of course this is subjective. I hope you make the trip. We have just made the trip to York Minster.
