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.

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. 👍👍

A member of Work in Progress visited Baddesley Clinton, a National Trust property, on Thursday 11th May to experience the venue as a young person. Baddesley Clinton is a Tudor manor house set in the centre of a moat in the heart of Warwickshire, with secret priest holes that tell of the countries religious divide. The site contains a selection... More

This is a lovely moated Manor House with bags of history. Make sure you have the introductory talk before entering, it sets up nicely what you will see and learn from the friendly room guides inside. The house is not large but has plenty to see. The grounds are well kept and worth seeing on a lovely day. If you... More

If you visit Packwood House then it is only a short hop to Baddesley Clinton. Not such stunning gardens but the house has more to offer, with an interesting priest hole.

I love visiting this place, I have been at least 4 times. Every time I go to UK I visit Baddesley, mainly because my grandparents live nearby. Lots of history and quirky stories to hear about from the guides.

First visit in about five years and what a great visit. This is an atmospheric and very interesting property with a great story. The volunteers are excellent - friendly and know so much. The gardens are also lovely. Excellent plant sale available and the café is tremendous - superb Apple Crumble!

We are NT members and live not too far away, so called in Saturday afternoon for a couple of hours. We haven't been in the house before as the times weren't right, but there was a slot available straight away so we went inside this time. My 12 year old daughter was very interested in this, as coincidentally the day... More
