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.

  • Really interesting place with lots to see both inside the hall, courtyards and tiered walled gardens. Staff are informative about the history of the place and friendly with it. Lots of variety in the food choices, good options for kids menu & adults too. It seems quite pricey (parking and entry) in comparison with other historic places but it is in very well kept condition. Just outside of Bakewell, definitely worth a visit!
  • Beautiful old Hall full of character and atmosphere. The staff enthralled me with their knowledge and witty tales. The gardens were a pleasure to see and the views from were breathtaking. Am bringing the family back here so they too can sample it's charm.
  • Simply wonderful! Staff here were so friendly and helpful! Loved the remarkable history of this place, so very well shared with visitors by interpretive plaques and signage and by the staff. The grounds were also awesome! A fantastic place to visit!
  • One of the best kept secrets in the Peak District. A beautiful, atmospheric house with so much history and lovely gardens. The restaurant is also highly recommended.
  • Beautiful old house and garden, well worth a visit being close to Bakewell & Chatsworth House.
