The Peak District National Park is home to two of England’s finest historic houses – Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall.
Situated within easy reach of The Peacock, these historic houses form part of the country’s romantic literary history, featuring in film and TV adaptations of Pride and Prejudice, Jane Eyre and The Duchess (to name a few). With numerous events throughout the summer months, we have selected our favourite reasons to visit these captivating homes in July and August. Guests at The Peacock also receive discounted entry at both Chatsworth House and Haddon Hall.
