Baddesley Clinton

A romantic and atmospheric moated manor house, dating from the 15 century and little changed since 1634. The interiors reflect the house’s heyday in the Elizabethan era, when it was a haven for persecuted Catholics – there are no fewer than three priest holes. There is a delightful garden with stewponds, a lake walk and a nature walk.

Charlecotte Park

The home of the Lucy family for over 700 years. The mellow brickwork and great chimneys of Charlecote seem to sum up the very essence of Tudor England. There are strong associations with both Queen Elizabeth I and William Shakespeare, who knew the house well. The rich early Victorian interior contains many important objects from Beckford’ s Fonthill Abbey. The balustraded formal garden gives onto a fine deer park landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown.
