Walks around Packwood House and Baddesley Clinton by Peter Carbin
Walk in a nutshell A good jaunt from a 16th-century farmhouse to a 15th-century moated manor house and back again, through the land where William Shakespeare grew up. The route is fairly long, uneven in places, and could be marshy. There is livestock in the area so dogs must be kept on a lead and cannot enter either property. The collection includes some beautiful 16th-century textiles and furniture — many of which came from Baddesley Clinton. With its moat and its exquisitely carved oak panelling, Baddesley is no less glorious.
Baddesley Clinton is a secluded, intimate estate which was home to the Ferrers family for years, whilst just over the fields Packwood was transformed by Graham Baron Ash in the s from a 17th century farmhouse into a dream-like vision of a Tudor country home. Begin at Baddesley Clinton's Visitor Reception. The walk begins by continuing left along the drive, passing Badger's Dell on the right just before the drive curves to the left. At the end of the drive, cross the road and walk up the lane opposite. Look out for a public footpath sign on the left and follow the path across the fields, going through a series of kissing gates to rejoin the road at a canal bridge. Turn right along the road and right again down a drive for The Grove, just after the railway bridge. At the end of the drive follow the footpath sign to the right along a hedge lined path which circles round to the left.
I visited Baddesley Clinton with the girls last year and loved it.
