Haddon Hall, two miles south of Bakewell on the banks of the River Wye, is one of the finest medieval manor houses in England. Haddon Hall is a unique example of building styles from the 12th to the 17th centuries. It was abandoned in 1640 by its owners, the Manners family, later the Duke of Rutland, when they moved to Belvoir Castle in Rutland. The 9th Duke moved back to Haddon when he married in 1912, and devoted much of his life to careful restoration work. The house we see today shows how well it has withstood the passage of time, his work almost indistinguishable from the original. The main rooms are built around a paved courtyard, there is a panelled banqueting hall complete with minsrels' gallery, medieval chapel and a light and airy long gallery with a beautifully decorated plaster ceiling.

The terraced Rose gardens, one of the chief glories of Haddon Hall, were added during the 16th Century. Here roses, clematis and delphiniums soften the harshness of the great stone buttresses and ancient walls of the house itself. There are spectacular topiary figures of the ancestral emblems, the peacock and the boar, in the huge yew bushes outside tha gardener's cottage. Haddon Hall and its setting has been very popular with film makers.
