Visited for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed the history of this wonderful house with superb gardens. Well worth visiting and the staff are very helpful. Lovely day. Highly recommended

Very good reception and help from staff. The audio guide provides masses of information and is very easy to follow. Layout is clear and views are amazing.
A very good introduction to Bess of Hardwick. Recommend a visit her prior to new Hardwick Hall.

We had a really nice visit here, but the site is quite small, and could't see the old hall, which is what I wanted to see, as it is only open on certain days.

A little on the expensive side too for what you get to see, but well worth a visit.

We are English Heritage members, so get free entry. If we go to Hardwick Hall then we usually have a quick look around the Old Hall as well. The view from the top is quite nice.

However, I don't think I would pay the entrance fee to get in. That isn't to say that there is anything particularly wrong with the Old Hall, there are just other attractions in the area which are better value for money.

Worth it is you are an English Heritage member though.

It's a old ruin but you can walk up the top it's very high but information given about the different rooms and their are some pictures to how the room would have looked years ago
