Create an itinerary including Chatsworth House
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.

  • Early May saturday and the sun was out, so the car parks were busy. The "House" profile is perhaps lower and longer than many stately piles? The uphill aspects in particular to the MASSIVE stable...

  • Haven't been to Chatsworth for nearly 10 years, so after paying over £50 for two tickets for my wife and myself, we were looking forward to it. We were staying at nearby Chatsworth Park Caravan...

  • Great place to visit especially if the weather is good. Lots of places to take a stroll and view. The house itself has plenty to see inside and includes a gift shop at the end. Plenty of parking. Some very nice flowers if you go at the right time too with vibrant colours. It's a well looked after place. Highly recommended and very relaxing.
  • Such a magical place with so much to do the gardens will keep you exploring for hours with hidden gems around every corner. The restaurants and shops are well managed and kept immaculate with plenty of staff to help with any need or queries you may all selling local food or goods. I was unlucky enough to need a little medical attention as my daughter bumped her head getting out of the car but a member of staff called for a medic who came very quickly and was so helpful and pleasant thank you
