Scenic Walking Area
Built sometime in the 15th century, Baddesley Clinton is a moated manor house noted for its historical importance and Elizabethan Tudor architecture. The manor contains paintings of the Ferrer lineage, which has made the house its home for over 500 years. After the Protestant Reformation in England, the Ferrer family remained Roman Catholic, and throughout the house you can explore the secret passages they built to conceal and protect Catholic priests. A beautiful estate surrounds the manor house. You can explore the garden and take a walk on trails that wind through 200-year-old oaks. Put Baddesley Clinton on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Lapworth travel itinerary maker.

  • A nice place to visit. We visited on a warm Saturday and it wasn't too busy so we were able to get many nice photos. The small gardens are pretty, the woodland walk around the lake is short but very p...  more »

  • National Trust members. A great place if the weather is warm and dry. I found the house to be a bit of a disappointment. It seems like all of the grand items have been taken and junk left behind. Not that impressive really. The grounds were better than the house. Nice moat around the house with fish swimming in it. Really nice gardens. Great picnic area. NO CHILDREN'S PLAY AREA. Would we go again, we agreed 'not.' Not the usual standard that the NT offers. Sorry.
  • Just loved it there. We had.a nice lunch as well. Needs more then 5 starts.
  • I'm a sucker for historical buildings, maybe because I can relate. Beautiful walk around the outer perimeter of the immediate grounds, and as you would expect, well maintained gardens within. A story of murder and goings on with the church along a pathway and how this beautiful modest house remained the property of the same family for centuries. Different in that it has a moat too.
  • Wasn't expecting to spend the time i did here. But once you go through the gates you realise that there are lovely walks and the beautiful house and church. Great 4 hour trip on a nice day.
  • Perfect afternoon,and weather couldn't have been better,All volunteers were knowledgeable and friendly.Don't miss the bloodstains in the library no spoiler alert!!! But the restaurant staff need more training,took 20 mins to order one cream tea with coffee,and one cheese scone with coffee.!!!Felt I was in the ''Twilight Zone'.But they were so friendly and cheerful,you just had to laugh.Loved every minute.
