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.

Another wonderful National Trust Property. Makes the annual membership fee worthwhile. There are walks from the car park to exercise dogs. Dogs are not allowed into the grounds of the house at all. I wish the National Trust would review this; I cannot see any reason why dogs could not be allowed in the outside cafe area. This is allowed... More

This is a lovely place to visit. I can remember coming here during my own childhood so to see my little boy now running through the courtyard and around the house was lovely with out NT membership.

An exquisite 15th Century moated manor house which was draped with wisteria when we visited and kept in beautiful condition.Unfortunately our timing was unfortunate as there were gaps where items were meant to be available for admiration as a change in theme was underway - quite understandable but a bit disappointing.Good excuse to go back for the house and the...

We were initially disappointed that no dogs were allowed even in the gardens and it was far too hot to leave them in the car so I ended up going alone and leaving my husband outside. The house is amazing both externally and internally. Well maintained, friendly staff and lots to see. I adored the stained glass windows. We will... More

Many National Trust properties have a great feeling about them but there is something special about Baddesley Clinton. There is a lovely ambience throughout the whole house staffed as it is with friendly informative volunteers that add greatly to the history of the house. Being a smaller property you can get a real sense of how it would be to... More

A fascinating house which was owned by the same family for over 600 years. Each room is well preserved, original furnishings and interesting portraits and paintings. It has a priest hole as the family was Catholic and hid priests during the time of Catholic suppression. The stained glass windows which record the family history are particularly interesting. The gardens are... More

This is a lovely house with a great approach and a beautiful interior (complete with Priest's Holes) and great interpretation. If they are doing a tour then make sure to go on it - the guides are really worthwhile and knowledgable.

NT places - what's not to like really ? Beautiful house - lots of interesting rooms and artefacts in a well kept property. Looked like wonderful grounds too but as what is our norm for any NT visit it was raining. As always the usual lovely NT staff on hand. 👍👍

The site contains a selection... More
