This moated manor house has been a sanctuary since the 15th Century and was the home of the Ferrers Family for 500 years. Baddesley Clinton was a sanctuary not only for the Ferrers family but other persecuted Catholics in its priest’s holes. The gardens include fish pools, walled garden and a lakeside walk. The Barn Restaurant serves hot meals, drinks and snacks and light refreshments are available in the Stables. Picnics are welcomed. There is a National Trust Shop and second- hand bookshop.
