Love to visit this Elizabethan type house. The moat (with friendly ducks), gives it a sense of old world and you walk through a small designed garden towards the entrance. (PS People kept not being able to find where the entrance was but were asking...More

Great visit, informative and interesting. I would recommend booking a guided tour as the house is steeped in history. We had an excellent guide who made the history of the manor come to life and it was very enjoyable. Our tour lasted about 90 minutes...More

We came here on a bit of a drizzly rainy Saturday. The gardens were still holding on despite the best efforts of autumn. The area around Baddesley Clinton is vast and it would be worth exploring on a separate day itself. The volunteers could answer...More

Save your money and visit here instead of Warwick Castle. Genuine history, experts who are committed to sharing their knowledge with you and even as a non member, the cost for the whole family is the same as for one person at Warwick Castle. More...More

Excellent way of learning about the days when priests were persecuted. The house and garden are very well maintained. The meal in restaurant was excellent. It is a good idea to combine this trip with Packwood House about 5 miles away.

A great place to visit for a couple of hours if you are in the area or passing through. Make an afternoon of it by visiting other national Trust places in the area (being a National trust member is definitely worth it!) The grounds are...More

Yes. If you want to sit down try the courtyard or the lawns opposite the entrance. The surrounding fields belong to the house and provide several short walks with ample spaces for picnic on the ground
