For Christmas I got a National Trust membership. It’s being a few years since I was last a member, but now looking forward to visiting new places and going back to places we have been to before.
Back in 2016 I did start to keep a note of how much we saved with the membership, but looking back over the blog, I never kept up to date with that, but with this membership I am intending to blog about the visits we do this year and the savings we made.
I actually went to Baddesley Clinton Hall, for two reasons, in the main to get a drink from the cafe as I was heading down the M5, and the other was to see what it was like, for a potential future visit. Though I had to take a little detour down the M42 and the M40 to get there.
Baddesley Clinton Hall
Moated manor house with late medieval, Tudor and 20th-century histories. Home to the Ferrers family for 500 years.
Current saving -£7.80
One adult £13.00
Total saving £13.00
Cumulative saving £139.00
Membership cost £133.80
Net cumulative saving £5.20
So after this visit the membership has paid for itself and we still have eleven months left. Obviously without a membership I probably would have either not visited Baddesley Clinton Hall, or I would have spent much longer than I did to get my money’s worth from the visit. However for this visit, which was more of a journey break, for this kind of quick trip, a National Trust membership is really useful and makes sense. Continue reading “Baddesley Clinton Hall”
