Chatsworth House

The Jewel in the Peak District

A visit to Chatsworth House in Derbyshire in the picturesque Peak District is so much more than simply a trip to a large stately home, it is an experience that you will never forget and a place to which its many visitors return time and again. There is so much more to this place than simply sumptuous furnishings, fantastic furniture and works of art, breathtaking gardens and fountains as well as restaurants, garden centres, cafes, shops and an adventure playground complete with a working farm.

Home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, since the 15th century, Chatsworth House is a living and working testament to how a major country house can become so much more than just a crumbling pile in which an aristocratic family live. Chatsworth has been livingly cared for, restored and kept in wonderful condition and is quite rightly one of the most popular historic houses in the country and any trip to the Peak District would not be complete without a visit.
