Haddon estate

The Haddon Estate is blessed with an extraordinary biodiversity of habitat which we treasure and nurture, and has been managed by my family for nearly 1000 years. We have rivers; woods; meadows; wetlands; hedges; farmland; orchards; and gardens in this beautiful landscape of the White Peak area of the Peak District. This land harbours wonderful flora and fauna and Estate makes its wellbeing a fundamental priority. This part of the website will become a resource to promote good management of land for the benefit of Nature.
