Summer fun at Baddesley

Take a gentle stroll through the grounds

Baddesley is the perfect place for families to explore the outdoors, breathe in the fresh air and run wild on the estate this summer. Join us for a fun packed day whatever the weather!

The magic of the moat, the stories of priest hunters and the freedom of the surrounding countryside means there’s something for everyone to enjoy at Baddesley.

Out on the estate children have the freedom to roam, be adventurous, and get messy and creative on our natural play trail inspired by the animals that live in the Warwickshire countryside.  Follow the animal sculptures, made by local carver Graham Jones, over to the woodland for an animal adventure.

The bird screen at Baddesley, situated out in the parkland is the perfect place for families to spot a variety of bird life. Nestled within the woodland, make yourself comfortable on one of the benches and wait patiently to see what sights and sounds unfurl around you. Bird spotting sheets are available from Visitor Reception.

Baddesley Clinton is well known for its resident ducks. Watch them, and their ducklings around the moat - but keep away from the Canada geese if they've got young - they might try to chase you away!
