We decided after staying in dorset for a few days that we needed a break travelling back up to lancashire. We noticed that Baddesley Clinton was around halfway and thought that should be OK.
Well what a surprise when we got there, the place is absolutely stunning. A moated house steeped in history and very well presented throughout. From the moment you step through the door you are transported back in time.
The hidden priest holes the artifacts and the history is never to be forgotten. The NT volunteers always ready to impart their knowledge with a smile. Personally I felt that I could live in that house it had such a feel good factor about it.
The gardens are not to be missed either well maintained and on a nice day it was a really pleasant walk round before enjoying a light lunch in the well appointed cafe. This property was the highlight of our journey home and will definitely revisit on a future journey down south. Very highly recommended !

This is somewhere I'd wanted to visit for many years, primarily to see the St.Nicolas Owen priest holes, and I was not disappointed in the slightest.

The whole estate is an absolute delight!

We were lucky enough to see the mother Ducks and ducklings in the yard whilst enjoying a delicious cup of tea and a cake with the little and not so little ducks quacking around our feet. The house itself is a national treasure and a fascinating piece of history. The staff were excellent and the volunteers really helpful.

I won't say too much about what's inside so I don't spoil the surprise but suffice to say, I can't wait to go back again for another explore!

Finally we were given the best show ever in the gatehouse with a swift (or swallow) nest with chicks and their parents in the roof of the building. Seeing them being feed whilst we and a number of others watched leant an extra special magic to this already unique place.

It really is a beautiful, heartwarming and interesting place to go.

What a beautiful place, lots of information,. child friendly. If you don't want to visit the house lots of open space on your doorstep. Great restaurants, if an NT member free entrance.

Wonderful house - very picturesque and a brilliant house representing Tudor times. Interesting history of the Reformation. Flowers in the garden were wonderful. Good sunny day and Book Fair. Could have stopped longer than we did. Excellent café.
