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.

  • The NT site is out of the way, but his a small shop and Cafe. The house has lots of architectural quirks to make it very interesting. As is the Gardens, well designed and spread out.  more »
  • A lovely old home managed by the National Trust. Ladies and gents in the house to tell people a bit of the history. Very interesting and well looked after. Nice gardens to walk around and I believe in...  more »

  • Fantastically preserved and curated Tudor house just outside of Solihull which is surrounded by beautiful park land. The house itself is surrounded by a moat and provides some great views. The site is run very well and includes a small restaurant and large outside seating area as well as a mid-sized gift shop and second-hand book shop. The restaurant itself is pretty pricey with a hot meal, drink and cake coming to 10-13 pounds. It's a great place to spend a few hours out in the countryside, taking in the history and picturesque setting.
  • A lovely place with lots of history. Surrounded by stunning natural countryside. Great to spend a few hours on a sunny day. This place is very popular on sunny weekends so best to get there early or go midweek to avoid the crowds. There's fields nearby where you can have a picnic aswell. I've knocked off one star as it's quite pricey! Not a budget day out so that's something to bare in mind.
  • I adored this place. The house was so beautifully presented and the grounds immaculate. A little muddy in places so best to wear wellies or hiking boots but this was just because of the recent rainfall here. Cafe good and in a barn with great height so pleasing environment to eat and there is extensive outdoor seating for alfresco lunches. We bought an old cloth map from the outside bookshop too, for £3.50.
  • Plenty of free parking. Pleasant walks around the estate. Paths a little muddy at present but generally passable. Some areas closed at present due to maintenance and rearrangement work. The garden areas under reconstruction in some areas such as the walled garden and vegetable gardens. Restaurant - reasonable choice of good food available most of the day, as normal National Trust establishments. Good coffee and tea etc. Seating can be limited at busy times.
  • A lovely place, where its quiet and calm! The ducks and geese were mingling amongst everyone in the grounds so it was great fun for the kids! The house itself is beautiful and the ladies of the era so brave! Ticked all the boxes!
