For our 25th Wedding Anniversary we decide to plan a Princess Bride Trip, many thanks to the book "As You Wish" that made locations easier to find. Haddon Hall, is just a beautiful estate. We spent about 4 hours here, and if it wasn't for us catching a train, we would have stayed longer. Everyone there is more than excited... More

We visited Haddon Hall on a very cold, grey October morning and were pleasantly surprised by the fact that they had lit the massive open fire which not only gave us the opportunity to warm ourselves but also added wonderful atmosphere to this beautiful historic building. Haddon Hall was a fascinating place, where history really came to life, like no... More

A very interesting place to visit, ( would be better in the summer. ) The place is let down by a poor cafe. It is listed as closing at 4pm, but we were told at 3.15 that is was closed already and there was no hot food available, but we could have a drink. only one gluten free cake available.... More

Four seniors visited on a Monday, which was a good choice as the hall was fairly quiet. The building was beautifully dressed with traditional Christmas decorations and wonderful open fires gave a real sense of how living must have been many years ago. The conservation of this wonderful building must be very difficult and expensive, but all renovation has been... More

What a delightful place this is. So welcoming and cosy All the fires were lit and I could have moved into the Parlour for Christmas! Staff not in your face, and when you did ask questions they knew the answers and told you a lot of the history of the Hall. Visited big brothers place, Belvoir Castle, last year, and... More

We visit Haddon every year - and this year is the first time that I have felt disappointed. The whiole place seemed to be linked to Shakespeare - apparently the Lady of the house is keen to establish a link with William Shakespeare. I have always looked forward to the roaring fires, the glitter, the Christmas trees - that is... More

Really enjoyed our visit today. The house is maintained with its original features and was nicely decorated for Christmas. Lovely views from the garden. We enjoyed looking round and staff were very helpful. Excellent talk from visiting speaker Patrick Harding about Christmas. Also enjoyed a festive mulled wine and mince pie. Good bus links from Buxton, Bakewell and Derby. Can... More

Our first visit to this lovely old building, despite living nearby. Enjoyed wandering through the Hall and small gardens at a leisurely pace. Very atmospheric, with big open fires and subdued (period) lighting. Nice time to visit with some Xmas decorations in place. There is a small Museum and of course a gift shop. Take care with footing throughout. There... More

A lovely building decorated for xmas. The xmas decorations were beautiful and the roaring fires added to the atmosphere. As members of historic houses association we had free entry, I did think £13 per adult was a bit steep as there were not a lot of rooms open and the gardens weren't very big. The car park charge was another... More

I absolutely love this place. Largely unspoilt & extremely pretty. Yes the floors are uneven in places but surely that's to be expected in a building of this age? Mince pies & mulled wine before the tour started which was led by a lovely enthusiastic lady. Unfortunately I didn't get her name but we were on the 7.30pm tour. My... More
