Discover a secluded, intimate estate set in the heart of the Forest of Arden with 500 years of fascinating and unexpected stories
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.
There are some great gardens for children to explore and many events for families taking place throughout the year. Check our "What's On?" listing or the National Trust website for more details of upcoming events at this and other National Trust properties in the area.
Packwood House and Baddesley Clinton National Trust properties are only two miles apart so why not make a whole day of it and visit these fascinating properties in one trip.
