Brand New Film About The Gardens At Haddon Hall

Award winning garden designer Arne Maynard talks about his work at the the gardens of Haddon Hall.


Arne Maynard - Garden Designer

Arne Maynard, Garden Designer

This brand new film from Haddon Hall looks at the restoration work being carried out on the Gardens and the traditional techniques that they still employ even to this day.

We briefly spoke to the owner of Haddon Hall Lord Edward Manners about the history of the hall and his family and also to Arne Maynard  about the design of the gardens, which includes an Elizabethan inspired knot garden at the rear of the Hall.

Haddon Hall really is one of those places that you can visit time and time again,  throughout the year and you will be sure to find something different every time.


Watch the film and use the interactive links to discover more information about Haddon Hall. 

Haddon Hall said “We are very privileged to have Arne Maynard as our Garden Designer – Gold Medal winner for the Laurent-Perrier Garden at Chelsea Flower Show 2012.”
