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.

The food served at the restaurant is at best tepid. Never mind there is a microwave if you don't mind queuing and can work it. Very poor.

Not a good experience having tea at Baddesley- one of my favourite properties. the wait in the queue is pretty horrendous on a busy weekend, the restaurant serving area is just quite inadequate, whereas the seating areas cater well for large numbers. The menu for lunch is pretty boring and rather akin to poor school food. Much needs to be... More

If you are in the area we fully recommend a visit, nice bit of history along with friendly staff and a nice cafe with good coffee and apple crumble. Most likely to return in the summer and see the grounds in all their glory.

As NT members we've visited this place a few times. The tickets are timed so the house is never so full you can't see anything, and for such a small house the history is fascinating. However like many NT properties the volunteer staff are it's biggest letdown. I know they give their time freely, and that must be applauded. However... More

Have been to this wonderful house several times and every time have discovered something new. Its packed full of history with priest holes and connections to the catholic church and then later on as a fashionable victorian home. Its picturesque grounds with lakes and gardens make for a lovely walk. It may be worth checking before you visit as to... More

The restaurant has a good range of food and an appetising range of hot food. The National Trust standard of food in their restaurants is consistently excellent

Lovely to walk around following paths even though I am not a 'walker'. The grounds are very pretty when the spring flowers are out and the light and lovely old trees a great subjects for photos

We received a warm welcome from the staff at Badsley Clinton, lots of volunteers to chat with who all were very well informed about the history of the house. We didn’t walk round the gardens as it was throwing it down with rain. As always, an excellent little tea room.
