Most of the stately homes one visits are venerable but have been subject to 'improvements' over the centuries, being frozen at some time in the 1920s or 1930s when sensibilities turned to the importance of preservation. That still gives a sense of the antiquity of...More

Haddon Hall is a beautifully preserved example of a Medieval hall. The staff in the rooms were very knowledgeable and willing to share their knowledge with visitors. It is amazing that the family still uses the building, it doesn't seem at all modern. As a...More

We didn’t have time to visit Chatsworth House but our visit to Haddon Hall was excellent in its own right. Would love to back in the summer to see the gardens in full splendor but the House is in excellent condition with a wonderful setting....More

We visited here early in the day, the staff were friendly and helpful. The tour is self led, with interesting descriptions for the tour rooms. The restaurant was based in the stables, up some quite steep stairs. The food looked good and was reasonably priced.

Perhaps we have been spoilt by visiting National Trust places. We were told this is better than Chatsworth but I'm not so sure. Not as big as we expected( the rooms that we could view anyway ) but staff very nice helpful and friendly. We...More

Visited here one Saturday and had a great time. If you have an interest in the Tudor period, then this is the place to visit. It is like walking back in time, unspoilt and authentic. The Restaurant serves excellent, value for money food and the...More

Such a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon in Bakewell. Haddon Hall has been on my "to do" list for some years and I wish I had seen it sooner. Chatsworth House is usually the bigger attraction of the area but seeing both Chatsworth...More

We spent the morning at Haddon Hall recently and had an amazing time. As a history buff I felt like a kid in a candy store. The Manor House had been "closed up" for about 200 years from the 1700s to the 1900s, so everything...More

Having seen the kitchen of this house on TV recently, I wanted to see the rest of it. It didn't disappoint. Walking round the house, you can imagine how people lived there years ago. The gardens were looking a little sad but then it was...More

Haddon Hall is one of my favourite historic homes. If you visit when they are having a Tudor event, it brings the place alive. You can feel transported back in time. The old kitchens are incredible. The rooms do not appear to have changed greatly...More

I'm not sure you could do that, as there is freedom to wander in and out of the house's various entrances and you purchase the ticket at the driveway entrance. It is much, much smaller in scale than Chatsworth and the... More
