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.

I took my very elderly mother and her carer to visit. I am a National Trust member but my mom and her carer are not. Although mom's carer had to pay they did not charge for my mother. She is 91 with advanced dementia. We take her out each week to give her some experiences and hopefully rekindle some memories,... More

Great historical buildings, well organised and informative. Beautiful gardens and some lovely circular walks from here. We visited here on a beautiful, hot summers day and it was wonderful to picnic in the grounds. Great 2nd hand book sales here too, we picked up some real treasures!

Popped in to the local NT property recently, to find characters from Shakespeare making an appearance in the vegetable plot as scarecrows. Amusing play on words. There were two more rooms available to view in the house than on my last visit, which was some years ago. The room guides seem far more numerous than I remember from before, so... More

I love visiting National Trust properties you can always guarantee a well kept place, well mannered, friendly and informed staff, the grounds are always well maintained, colourful and with easy access. The restaurant and shop were well manned with plenty of offers to complete your visit, the book shop is worth a mooch ! Many thanks ☺

Truly a trip back in time. Unlike so many country houses Baddesley was never "improved" by the Victorians and remains largely as it has been for several hundred years. Set away from main roads and protected by its moat the house is a charming building in a lovely setting. Its historical significance is the family's adherence to Catholism and the... More

We visited the gardens, lakes and walks which were well-tended and very nice to look at. Our son and his uncle also visited the house which they said was very interesting. Their were several childrens' activities going on. We particularly enjoyed the vegetable garden.

We visited this NT property mainly because it was convenient for where we staying. Having said that, we were pleased that we did visit. We enjoyed the house, timed visits helping to avoid a crush, and several of the volunteers in the rooms were knowledgeable and had interesting stories. We only sampled the coffee, but the meals on offer in... More

Lovely to see a house that has been in the possession of the same family for 12 generations. Much of the house dates from the 16th century when it was built by Henry Ferrers. The gardens are lovely with extensive parkland.

We called in for a couple of hours mainly to see the dahlias but the whole garden is now looking really good - in fact the best we have seen it in years. It was quite busy but still plenty of places to sit and admire them as well of course as the traditional walk around the moat and the... More

We went for the house itself; fascinating, and livable (as opposed to daunting like some castles). They do timed ticket entry but we got there early and were allowed to go straight in, but the rooms were not built for crowds so I think it can be difficult on the busiest days. There were quite a lot of attention-to-detail matters.... More
