A beautiful medieval moated Manor House, with a lot of history. It’s origins started in 1066. Being a NT member it was free for me to enter. General admission prices however, are still reasonable. Stunning grounds with plenty of nice areas to sit and have a picnic before or after exploring the house and grounds. Inside the house is beautiful with many original features including priest hides and the library has all original books. We were informed by one of the very helpful guides that they have conservators in to check conditions of the books. The guides are very knowledgeable helpful. The rooms are very grand and again still maintained a lot of original furniture and fittings. There is an on-site car park, a cafe/ restaurant and toilets on site too. It has the usual gift shop, which at most of these places I think are very over priced. I highly recommend a visit.

Absolutely loved this place. Moated house. Beautiful interior, full to the brim, and amazing wood panelled rooms. Huge history attached. Guides so very helpful, and telling interesting stories. A wonderful warm feel to this house, rooms open upstairs and downstairs. We enjoyed walking the grounds/lake etc. Squirrels, ducks ... even a little nut hatch flying in the woodland area. Lots of school children enjoying the grounds, which was good to see. Very much enjoyed this visit.

Great place to visit. Free car parking. Friendly informative staff who have great stories to tell in each room. House is very old and interesting. Lovely gardens. House has most with geese who all want to share your lunch. We had a give star visit.

This National Trust property was such a nice surprise! It was busy, but we were able to get the timed house tickets upon arrival for 35 minutes later. In the house, do recommend taking a look at the timeline in the first room as gives a brief history not found later on. The house was an absolute historic gem - you see about 10 rooms across 2 floors, with beautiful timber, ornate fireplaces, artwork, helpful volunteers. It was decorated for Christmas when we were there, and included tasteful festive trees and decor, interesting Christmas facts in each room, and an activity for kids to spot the snowmen. There is ample parking, a good used bookshop, interesting shop, and the temporary toilets in place were small but clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful throughout - getting tickets, in restaurant, bookshop, and throughout the house.

Our 2nd visit to BC after quite a few years, thought we’d come and have a look at the Christmas decor. Always a lovely visit, we bought our two dogs and did some of the estate walk (public right of way etc) up passed the church and through a gate off the lane to the right and just go straight. A lovely walk to give them some exercise. Then popped into the house whilst they both had a nap in the car. Had a hot drink after on way out. Note the toilets are closed, being re-furnished but they do have super posh temporary ones just in front of the house behind the book store. Don’t be put off the are really nice inside. Great guides in the house, 2 x priest holes. Check out the beautiful library which houses very old books that did belong to and were read by the family of Baddesley we were told. A fantastic looking wine cellar just off the main arched entrance. We didn’t walk around the main grounds today as we wanted to visit some other nearby places and have lunch but BC again didn’t disappoint. Shame the church wasn’t open ? No dogs allowed passed the visitor reception or house or inner gardens, shame you can’t at least take them in a lead around the outside of the house but hey ho, we made do.
