From the NT:
Baddesley Clinton was the home of the Ferrers family for 500 years.
Much of the house you see today was built by Henry Ferrers, a lawyer, diarist and antiquarian, in the late 1500s.
The house was a sanctuary not only for the Ferrers family, but also for persecuted Catholics who were hidden from priest hunters in its secret hiding places during the 1590s.
From the NT:
A much-restored Tudor house, park and garden with notable topiary "A house to dream of, a garden to dream in." The house was originally built in the 16th century, yet its interiors were extensively restored between the First and Second World Wars by Graham Baron Ash to create a fascinating 20th-century evocation of domestic Tudor architecture.
Packwood House contains a fine collection of 16th-century textiles and furniture, and the gardens have renowned herbaceous borders and a famous collection of yews.
In the heart of rural #Wiltshire, the idyllic #GreatChalfieldManor has been home to powerful lawyer Thomas Tropenell in the 15th century and since then had been lived in by his descendants and then the Fullers of the brew fame in the last 500 plus years. The #gardens retain their #romantic#Medieval simplicity, with a profusion of colors from whites to lilacs, oranges, purples and yellows - all made so much sweeter by the scent of #EnglishRoses. Partially managed for the family by the #NationalTrust, walking through the great hall, the well-presented rooms furnished by centuries-old pieces with Medieval music in the air, through the courtyard and grand gates heavy with ivy and climbing roses and grapes - it is like walking through time. No wonder it is a favorite location for #movies and TV shows with #WolfHall being the case in point. If you are a fan of history and a languid day spent exploring a cozy 15th century estate, this place is highly recommended.
