4.6/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web
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.

  • Excellent visit for family reunion. Lovely roast dinner. Beautiful building, moat, lake, gardens. Didn't get to go inside the house as we felt it best not to take the young children around it. Also ha...  read more »
  • Very impressed with the house and grounds, lots of interesting features and beautiful walks. Staff very friendly and informative. Would love to return when the fire is roaring in the great hall. 
  • A wonderful old moated house with a real history. Lovely gardens and parkland beyond. Large second hand book shop. Plenty of seats in the cafe. Car park close by. So far, so good. Things I didn't like...  read more »
  • Lovely little moated property, with quite a bit to see and do. Beautifully maintained gardens of different styles. Nice restaurant, bookshop and shop with an array of plants on sale. Always something on offer. Bonus with an ice cream parlour. Parking on site, with overflow carpark. Just come before 15:00, to get last entry tickets in to the house otherwise you might miss out.
  • 500 years of history. A National Trust house well worth a visit. Situated in Warwickshire countryside. Wonderful country walks with children's play areas. The restaurant provides a selection of good food and drinks.
  • Lovely house and gardens but very poor experience in the restaurant. The were not exactly busy but the young staff behind the counter really didn't have a clue what they were doing. I stood for 20 minutes at the cash till waiting for 2 coffees. 3 people were served behind me and I had to remind them twice about my coffees. I also had to ask for replacement food as it had gone cold as I was waiting so long !! There were not volunteers either so surely they should be better than that !!
  • A lovely house and grounds for walks. Not as large as Packwood House, but still worth the drive up the road. The volunteers who support the house don't always fair well with children and can be a bit 'jumpy' at times. Also on site is a second hand book store and cafe. This is a lovely place for picnics in the Summer, but beware of the ducks!!!
  • A nice little property. My young daughter enjoyed the wide open spaces of the grounds.
