Parked opposite Hall for £3. Crossed road to Hall entrance. Hall entrance via steep steps. Very interesting property. Lots of rooms to visit. Information given in each room. Guides available to answer questions. Food available on site. Toilets clean.

There's no denying, a damp, drizzly and overcast day could not ruin my visit to this spectacular hall. It truly was the highlight of my trip to the Peak District and I can't wait to return one day! The price to get in was far below that of most other attractions in the area and worth every penny, you can even return all year for free (which I will most definitely be doing). The hall is stunningly preserved throughout with plenty of information boards around. The staff are very polite, friendly and helpful, and are only too willing to share their vast knowledge with you in each room. It is certainly not difficult to imagine the past inhabitants living their daily lives within its walls. There are a few steps and the floor can be very uneven in places but you are free to take your time and explore at your leisure. There is a short walk from the car park but it is flat and there is an option to drop off disabled visitors closer to the main gate if needed. The gift shop is small but has plenty of beautiful items for sale. I cannot recommend visiting this hall enough, please do go if you're in the area.

Haddon is still a family home but has been so well cared for and presented that it makes a great experience for visitors. So much more tactile than some of its greater neighbours it has parts that date back to King John with the Great Hall almost untouched for the past few hundred years. The grounds are not huge but again are very well cared for and give excellent views over the countryside. You are left to your own devices to simply wander round but there are some good visual aids including the TV programme that was made here using equipment and methods from several hundred years ago. There is a small café/restaurant that served very good and reasonably priced refreshments.
