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.

  • Such a grand stately home with tons of arts displays complimenting the historical pieces. Love the vast garden, with different sites of scenery, not enough to see them all in a day. Kids love the farm yard and adventure playground. I would love to go there again with the 50% off voucher. Can easily spend a lovely day out with family here.
  • Fabulous day out, beautiful gardens and the maze was so much fun. We thought it was going to be easy but…nope :-) we had a duck come sit with us by the river while we had coffee which was lovely. The sculptures are amazing. The coal tunnel in the rockery is an interesting walk, makes you feel like a child in an adventure.
