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.

Explore the historic house for fascinating stories and one of Europe’s most significant art collections. In the garden, discover water features, giant sculptures and beautiful flowers set in Britain’s most stunning and surprising country estate. Or come face to face with our farm animals in our working farmyard and enjoy adventurous fun in the playground.

Furthermore, with holiday cottages and hotels, shops and restaurants, including Britain’s best farm shop, you can really make the most of your time with us.
