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.

We were really looking forward to seeing the many themes from previous years, after a promising start, we were left feeling very disappointed and underwhelmed, come on Chatsworth you can do so much... 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.
