Overview

More
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 explored the garden first. Walked to the vegetable garden which was unfortunately closed due to the rains experienced in the last couple of days. Climbed some trees, crossed some bridges, followed some hidden trails, built and sat in dens, chased ducks, to name but...More

This is a lovely moated Manor House. It really feels like the family have just popped out. It has good associations with key events such as the Gunpowder plot and enough of interest to appeal to all ages. The grounds are fascinating and a walk...More

I would stress that this review regards the restaurant only as the property & grounds remain of a high standard. Up until a couple of years ago the restaurant was one of the best in any NT property but recently the choice of main meals...More

An extremely lovely day out here. It's a shame that they won't let dogs into the grounds, and don't tell you until you have scanned your NT card which felt a bit of a swizz, but still a great house and garden.

The NT site is out of the way, but his a small shop and Cafe. The house has lots of architectural quirks to make it very interesting. As is the Gardens, well designed and spread out.

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.
