Saturday Tour - Haddon Hall

We are currently organising a tour of Haddon Hall House & Gardens on Saturday 5th September. Here are some facts & photos of Haddon Hall...

Haddon Hall, the private residence of Lord and Lady Edward Manners,  is set in the Peak District in the valley of the River Wye.

With nine hundred years of history, it is one of the oldest houses in the country and moreover one of the only houses in England to have remained in one family’s ownership for its entire existence.

Haddon is unique as it remained empty for nearly two hundred years

This extraordinary period, when time stood still in the Hall, allowed it to remain unaltered during the modernising period of the Georgians and Victorians. So venturing into Haddon is like stepping back in time, since from the 1700s the family preferred to live at their main seat, Belvoir Castle in Leicestershire.

The Medieval Banqueting Hall remains furnished with its original Dais table, behind which hangs a tapestry gifted to the family by visiting Henry VIII.

The Parlour boasts its glorious Tudor painted ceiling of Tudor roses and marvellous heraldic panelling.

Exquisite and very rare 15th century frescos adorn the walls of the Medieval Chapel.

In contrast to the Tudor and Medieval Rooms below, the light and airy first floor Elizabethan rooms culminate in the spectacular 110ft Robert Smythson designed Long Gallery; reputed to be one of the most beautiful rooms in England.

The terraced Elizabethan Walled Gardens, known for their beauty and structure, cascade down to the River Wye and providing spectacular views of the ancient parkland and Peak District beyond.  Recently  re-designed by Chelsea Award winning garden designer, Arne Maynard, these make for an equally important part of any visit to the Hall.
