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.

We’d been before and been impressed by the house - this time we went when the house had been decorated with dried flower arrangements. ‘Decorated’ is an understatement - do go and see for yourself this Xmas - it’s fantastic. My only gripe is that...More

This is quite a small house by NT standards but it is in a lovely setting surrounded by a moat where you are greeted by very friendly ducks. It was free flow when we visited - midweek, end of November - but there were some...More

All rooms had dried brilliant flower displays mostly sourced by volunteers. The house is sort of place you would like to stay in. The house is original without modern makeovers made by changing owners. The garden refurbishment is a work in progress with guided tours...More

There is a lot of history at Baddesley, with Priest holes and stories of life in Victorian times. However it is worth going for the Christmas decorations. The everlasting flowers form baubles and posies on the several Christmas trees as well as on garlands around...More

Extremely impressed by this NT property, a beautiful moated manor house with connections to the gunpowder conspiracy. The whole place was very interesting, from the priest hole in the sewers to the hall with its log fire, the dark wood panelling, the stone fireplaces, creaking...More

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.

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.
