Haddon Hall – The Gatehouse

We enter the estate of Haddon Hall through the massive oak doors of the gatehouse, where our first glimpse of the beautifully situated home greets us. Its tan limestone walls rise up above the surrounding trees commanding attention from the visitors who follow the drive across a quiet brook up the path to the front door. As soon as we passed through the gates, I felt like I’d stepped back in time about 400 years. This seemed to sum up so many of my expectations when I had boarded a plan four days earlier and I couldn’t wait to discover more!
