The Terraced Gardens lie to the south-east of the Hall and are accessed by a doorway from the Hall. Steps leads down to the Bowling Green Terrace which was replanted by Arne Maynard in 2011. Maynard also redesigned the Fountain Garden which can be accessed from the upper terrace by steps.
Little is known of the history of the terraced gardens although there’s a reference in 1650 to a new door being built in the garden wall. Christopher Hussey [Country Life, 1949] thinks that the terraced walk along the south-east side of the Hall and possibly the terraces below this, may have been built c1545.
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.
