Haddon Hall

The Gardens are arranged as a series of terraces leading down to the River Wye with magnificent views over the estate to the Peak District National Park.

Lying to the south-east of the Hall, the Gardens are accessed by a doorway from the Hall. Steps lead down to the Bowling Green Terrace which was replanted by Arne Maynard in 2011 – Maynard also redesigned the Fountain Garden.

Maynard took inspiration for his design from the tapestries within the Hall and has created wildflower meadow borders with hornbeam and beech topiary. He has also updated the borders with roses and planted many Elizabethan plants used for dyes and remedies.

Don’t miss the 15th century frescoes in the Chapel.

Many films have been filmed at Haddon including Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice and The Other Boleyn Girl.
