Well I am in the Cotswolds for a week.
As ever I left early and was waiting for Baddesley to open. I chose Baddesley because the restaurant and gardens opened at 9am! So I headed in and no I didn't have a scone! I had a tasty Sausage Bap!
So into the gardens....
The vegetable garden has a collection of figures of Henry VIII and his wives!
Obviously Quacks approves of a place where his family are at home :)
Baddesley was probably establish in the thirteenth century. In 1517 the house came in to the Ferrers family who held it until 1940. The Ferrers were Roman Catholic recusants and there are a number of priest holes.
Just down the road from Baddesley is another NT property..... and that is to follow!
