At stately Chatsworth House, experience British royal life in the countryside. The historic 16th-century home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire sits on 405 hectares (1,000 acres) of manicured parkland in the heart of the scenic Peak District. Of the house's 126 rooms, you can visit 30. You'll see lavishly decorated interiors and many works and ancient artifacts that are part of a significant art collection from around the world. Watch animal demonstrations in the farmyard, such as cow-milking and chick-hatching, and wander around the sculptures, waterfalls, fountains, and hedgerow mazes in the 42.5 hectare (105 acre) garden. The house also hosts temporary exhibits, so check the program before visiting. A visit to Chatsworth House represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Bakewell visit planning site to plot your vacation.
Chatsworth House Reviews
It’s not cheap to get in - £22 pp plus £4 po fir the optional “taster” guided tour. The “taster” was worth every penny for the introduction to the highlights of the house and the anecdotes and stories... more »
Have been to Chatsworth on several occasions . A wonderful house and gardens with interesting exhibits. Good restaurants and shops but not cheap. Some very creative exhibitions the latest dog themed. more »
Delightfully curated stately home. They've really gone to the next level in the gardens, everything is so superbly maintained, with plenty to do and see. Certainly a very large property so no really ideal for small children as you will need the entire day and serious stamina to appreciate the entire site.
One of the most visited places in the Peak District, it deserves the attention it gets. This place is typical for a day's outing. There is so much to see around and explore from the past here. The house is the piece of history you would always want to have. The vast garden area around it is very relaxing and keeps children and adults occupied alike. A must visit if you are in peak district.
