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.

A wonderful stone built Manor House in a lovely parkland location. The gardens and wooded grounds contain several delightful walks. The guides are friendly and eager to share stories about the house and Ferrers family with visitors. The rooms and corridors are quite small so...More

Catholics priests in the Midlands really did have places to go and hide and this is another gem to compare with Harvington Hall, and Pakwood HJouse to name only two. The house itself is interesting with the family history coming as close as the 1940's....More

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.
