A Visit to Haddon Hall
Haddon Hall is rightly acclaimed as one of the most beautiful medieval manor houses in the whole of England, and we believe it’s an absolute must-see for any visitor to the Peak District.
Its castellated stone walls are covered with ivy and climbing roses, and its perfect setting overlooking the River Wye is straight out of a romantic fairytale.
Parts of Haddon date back to the 12th Century and it is very well-preserved, with most of it unchanged since the days of Henry VIII. The rooms at Haddon all offer fascinating glimpses into its history, with the Banqueting Hall, Chapel and Kitchens being of particular note.
The beauty outside is possibly even greater than that within; the gardens are justifiably famous and the Elizabethan terraced garden is the perfect place for a summer stroll, providing superb views of the surrounding countryside.
