Haddon Hall, located a couple of miles from the center of Bakewell, is a magnificent country house that was constructed in stages from the 13th to the 17th centuries.

Once a residence for the Dukes of Rutland, it is widely regarded as one of the most exceptional surviving medieval manor houses in the UK. Remarkably, Haddon Hall remained virtually unchanged for 200 years after its abandonment until it was restored and made habitable again in the 1920s.

During your visit, you will have the opportunity to explore the interior of the hall, including the captivating old kitchen and the grand banquet hall, where an immense table has remained in its original position throughout history.

Outside, you’ll be greeted by a stunning parterre and walled topiary garden, offering mesmerizing views of the scenic Peak District.

Thanks to its authentic period charm, Haddon Hall has served as a filming location for notable movies such as The Princess Bride (1987), Elizabeth (1998), and Jane Eyre (2011).
