Haddon Hall is the finest example of a medieval manor house currently in existence in England. The origins of the hall are from the 11th century, with additions at various stages between the 13th and the 17th centuries, latterly in the Tudor style. The exterior walls are adorned with climbing roses and there is a beautiful terraced garden. Haddon Hall is a popular choice as a film and TV location. A restaurant and gift shop complete the visitor's experience.

The Old House4.81km from Chatsworth House

The Old House Museum in Bakewell is about 200 metres away from the church, situated in the oldest standing building in Bakewell. It houses a small exhibition of local life and artefacts, in 11 beamed rooms.  There are 10 rooms on show within the house, plus an outdoor collection of historic artefacts that includes a stainless steel scale model of a mill wheel from Lumford Mill. Many of the rooms feature their original Tudor fireplaces, and the first floor rooms have exposed timber beams.

Froggatt Edge6.4km from Chatsworth House

Froggatt Edge is a gritstone escarpment in the Dark Peak area of the Peak District National Park.  There is high a concentration of quality here, in fact, almost every route on the cliff is worthy of attention. Much of the cliff was quarried; abandoned millstones still lie where they were left when the industry collapsed. The escarpment offers views across both moorland and valley.

Nine Ladies Stone Circle6.72km from Chatsworth House

A small early Bronze Age stone circle traditionally believed to depict nine ladies turned to stone as a penalty for dancing on Sunday. It is part of a complex of prehistoric circles and standing stones on Stanton Moor. The Nine Ladies features a creation myth similar to those associated with many other stone circles. Local legend records how nine young maidens danced at the Sabbath to the tunes played by a lone fiddler. For their sin, they were turned to stone.
