Chatsworth, home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, is set in the heart of the Peak District in Derbyshire, on the banks of the river Derwent. Home of the Cavendish family since the 1550s, it has evolved through the centuries to reflect the tastes, passions and interests of succeeding generations.
Chatsworth House has over 30 rooms to explore, from the magnificent Painted Hall, to the family-used chapel, regal State Rooms and beautiful Sculpture Gallery. Chatsworth also houses the Devonshire Collection, one of Europe's most significant art collections, which is continually added to, encompassing Old Masters to contemporary ceramics and artefacts from Ancient Egypt to cutting edge modern sculpture.
Each year Chatsworth hosts a number of special events including the Horse Trials, Country Fair and Christmas market; and from November the lower floors of the house are transformed for the annual Christmas displays. In addition to the busy events programme, each year Chatsworth also hosts a number of special exhibitions included with admission. In addition to the headline exhibition, every autumn the Chatsworth Garden hosts Sotheby's Beyond Limits sculpture exhibition, as well as a rolling programme of showcasing Old Master Drawings which continues through the year.
The estate also offers holiday cottages, hotels, shops and restaurants, including the award winning Chatsworth Estate Farm shop in the village of Pilsley, approximately 1.5 miles from Chatsworth House.
Explore Chatsworth's 105 acres of stunning gardens, miles of footpaths, extravagant water features, outdoor art exhibitions, surprises at every turn, rose, cottage, sensory and kitchen gardens, and magnificent views of the park.
Chatsworth's gift shops have a wide selection of beautiful and exclusive products inspired by different aspects of the Chatsworth Estate. The gift shops provide hours of delight and retail therapy.
Farmyard and Adventure Playground
In Chatsworth's own working farmyard you can meet and learn about their friendly animals, not to mention milking demonstrations, trailer rides, a fun-packed adventure playground and free seasonal activities.
Offering family friendly food with freshly made sandwiches, cakes and a range of pasties, you'll find everything you need to refuel during a fun filled day on the farm.
