Lesson / Workshop · Landmark
Step back in time in one of the finest examples of a medieval and Tudor manor house open to visitors. The origins of the English country house date back to the 11th century, when it was owned by William Peverel, the illegitimate son of William the Conqueror. The current hall includes additions made periodically between the 13th and 17th centuries. Stroll through the remarkably preserved house and gardens and discover how these privileged families and their servants lived. In the Hall’s setting, amongst the mountains of the Peak District National Park overlooking the River Wye, relish the view enjoyed for centuries by the lords and ladies, sirs, earls, and dukes and duchesses of the manor. You can play Jane Eyre in the house and grounds that have hosted no less than three screen adaptations of the novel. Put Haddon Hall into our Bakewell route maker website to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Bakewell.

  • Visiting Haddon Hall is like going back in time! One of the most unspoilt and untouched country manors in England and owned by the same family since it was built in the 1300s! Any time of the year is....  more »
  • Extremely interesting children's tour made the visit to the fascinating old house. Fascinating early chapel with frescoes. A bit uneven and not really disabled accessible for obvious reasons. Lovely gardens. Restaurant up a steep flight of old steps but food good
  • Lovely place, even in the pouring rain. Gardens were beautiful and a nice interface with the surrounding countryside. Hall historic and fascinating - best seen on a brighter day than the one we had. Staff very friendly and welcoming. Good cafe. I enjoyed a nice mocca but it was over-priced at £3.70. Good plant shop with nice lady working in there. In the hall, the information boards were hard to read in either bright or dull light. This was due to the information being embossed on bronze plaques which were heavy to pick up. It would be better for information to be in black lettering on a white background. Final points; I was able to use my 2 for 1 BBC Gardeners World magazine voucher at this place which made for a tidy saving on the admission price and children up to age 15 get in for free which is good for budget conscious folk.
