Explore the secret world of Baddlesley Clinton Manor House
Dating back to the 15th century and home to the wealthy Ferrers family for 500 years, Baddesley Clinton manor house in Lapworth, just south of Birmingham, is a moated medieval house with interiors reflecting the Elizabethan period. The history to this house is fascinating – it was a refuge for persecuted Catholics and it has no less than three priest's holes to discover – and an amble around the rooms enlightens visitors on how the Ferrers family lived in isolated but splendid conditions surrounded by stunning gardens and a romantic lake. Outside, there is a lovely countryside walk from Baddesley Clinton passing Packwood House. For families, there are also trails and outdoor activities throughout the year.
