Haddon Hall, Bakewell

(4.3/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Haddon Hall a centerpiece of your Bakewell vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Bakewell trip itinerary maker.

  • 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!
  • A little time ago now but very much enjoyed the visit to this lovely house and gardens. Gardener very willing to share a chat about his work.
  • Lovely garden and lots of rooms to explore. Every stone and door is steeped in history. Haddon Hall has been in the same family for hundreds of years. A great day out for those who have time to explore.
  • 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.
  • Bonus of beautiful gardens. Staff very friendly and helpful, delicious lunch in the cafe. Good quality items in the gift shop too.
