Haddon Hall (Bakewell) ... medieval manor house dating from the 12 th Century, and is the home of Lord and Lady Edward Manners whose family have owned it since 1567. Described by Simon Jenkins in 1000 Best houses as "the most perfect house to survive from the middle ages", this remarkable old house is surrounded by terraced Elizabethan gardens and is set amongst the rolling countryside of the Peak District National Park. Haddon has featured in many films and TV programmes including, most recently Pride and Prejudice starring Keira Knightly, Mathew MacFadeyn, and Dame Judy Dench.
Newest Review: ... the modern day visitor, Haddon Hall offers an almost unique opportunity to see a Tudor/Stuart era house that has remained virtually unchanged for over 300 years. The actual site itself is even older and features a stunning medieval chapel (complete with biblical wall paintings and a Norman font) that will take your breath away and is quite unlike any chapel you are likely to have seen before. ... more

Because if you're looking for that authentic "olde worlde" history, there's nowhere else comes close.

The area of Derbyshire I live in is great for anyone with an interest in history. We have some excellent places to visit, including some notable stately homes, historic houses and castles. Chatsworth House is perhaps the most famous, but there are many others that are well worth a look. Bolsover Castle, Hardwick Hall, Peveril Castle and Eyam Hall are good examples of the other places on offer. Today, however, I would like to tell you about Haddon Hall. ~~~WHERE IS HADDON HALL? Haddon Hall can be found around two miles south of Bakewell. It is pretty well signposted - follow the brown tourist signs from Bakewell or Matlock on the A6. You can ... Read the complete review
