Stratford-upon-Avon and the Heart of England Sights

Baddesley Clinton

Updated 05/29/2014

Fodor's Review

The eminent architectural historian Sir Nikolaus Pevsner described this as "the perfect late medieval manor house. The entrance side of grey stone, the small, creeper-clad Queen Anne brick bridge across the moat, the gateway with a porch higher than the roof and embattled—it could not be better." Set off a winding back-road, this grand manor dating from the 15th century retains its great fireplaces, 17th-century paneling, and three priest holes (secret chambers for Roman

Catholic priests, who were hidden by sympathizers when Catholicism was banned in the 16th and 17th centuries). The café is an idyllic spot. Admission to the house is by timed ticket; Baddesley Clinton is 2 miles east of Packwood House and 15 miles north of Stratford-upon-Avon.
