Home to Lord and Lady Edward Manners, Haddon Hall is one of the country’s most elegant stately homes.

Haddon invites visitors to immerse themselves in centuries of history, art and craftsmanship, and stroll around the Hall’s magnificent cascading gardens, enjoying uninterrupted views of the Peak District. 

Experience the Hall’s grandeur, marvel at the rare 15th-century frescoes in the Chapel and savour the plethora of roses which shroud the limestone walls in a sonnet of pale pinks and whites.

Haddon Hall also holds a number of events and exhibitions throughout the year. With a restaurant and gift shop within the grounds, the Hall is the perfect location for a full day out.

It is the choice location for many film-makers, playing host to three versions of “Jane Eyre”, became Prince Humperdinck’s Castle in cult movie the Princess Bride and was also used in "Elizabeth”, "Pride & Prejudice” and “The Other Boleyn Girl”.

Garden Workshop Series - Understand Your Soil

Get the most out of your garden and understand how to work with your soil in this hands-on workshop.

Bring a sample of your own soil and join our Head Gardener who will show you how to test your soil’s pH, structure, texture and nutrient content. Take away a bespoke prescription for your soil featuring recommended organic soil improvers and feed. The day will cover soil analysis, soil improvement and plant nutrition.                                          

Includes the option to have lunch and a tour with the Head Gardener.

Admission: £55 

Please visit our website for further information or to book a place. 


Haddon has been described by Simon Jenkins as ‘one of the most perfect houses to survive from the middle ages’ and certainly the setting is dreamy and brings to mind fairy tales with happily ever after endings.
