In the days when old houses were ripped apart, rebuilt and refurbished, Haddon Hall luckily survived. For over two hundred years it sat untouched and unloved, until its owner the 9thDuke of Rutland came to the rescue.
‘Britain’s best loved stately home’ is just one of the many accolades heaped on Chatsworth, home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire and described in guidebooks as the ‘Palace of the Peak’.
This rural shopping village is situated on the main road between Bakewell and Matlock, not far from both Chatsworth and Haddon Hall.
Situated just near the house and car park is Chatsworth’s main attraction for children, a popular farmyard and superb woodland adventure playground.
