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.

Unusual, but lovely, NT property.

Thoroughly enjoyed an afternoon visit here following on from Packwood in the morning. Fascinating and unusual moted house a mixture of victorian and tudor. Loved it!

This is a delightful place, with a unique atmosphere & history. The moated house isn't huge, but is packed with interesting objects & a fascinating history, which the knowledgeable guides were happy to describe. The surrounding gardens & woodland walks are also relatively small, but very pleasant, while the jacket potatoes in the restaurant were definitely not on the small... More

A wonderful moated National Trust house built in the 1500's and adapted in the later 1500's with a number of priest holes. As always with the NT the houses Baddersley Clinton is staffed with wonderfully knowledgeable volunteers always willing to share their knowledge. The grounds outside the moat are a wonderful place for a picnic and to let the grandchildren... More

Sunday 16th April – Easter Sunday, My husband and I went out for the day to celebrate my friend Susan's 58th Birthday. We all went to visit Baddesley Clinton Moated Manor House at Baddesley in Warwickshire, which is owned by The National Trust. As the weather forecast said it would rain in the early part of the afternoon, we decided... More

We decided to go and have a look around here after we had joined the National Trust. What a wonderful place. Staff are so friendly and helpful and know their stuff about Baddesley Clinton. Beautiful grounds to walk around. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

This was our second visit, which says it all really. Lovely way to spend a few leisurely hours. I cannot say it was the highlight of the day for our teenage children, but with the on-site activities I would imagine it fun for younger children. I have to say my father in-law enjoyed the visit. I would recommend checking the... More

We were staying locally in Hockley Heath Premier Inn as a base for Cadbury World, but we always look for National Trust properties to visit if we're in a new area. Having two so close together (this and Packwood House) was brilliant. It's always good when the Property has a tour or Hunt for the children to do. It means... More

Our first visit here to this wonderful building surrounded by a moat. The gardens & lakes were stunning especially with all the tulips in colour. Pair this visit with Packwood house for a lovely day out.

Being supporters of the national trust we came again with our dog. It was such a nice place to come to and the book shop grand. The weather was sunny which made all the difference. The cuppa and cake was worthwhile.
