Chatsworth House< Return To UK
Chatsworth House has been a dream of mine for years….after seeing it as a film location in ‘Pride and Prejudice’. Spending a day there was so exquisite. The House is a true British gem and I regret that it has taken me so long to visit the estate.
Chatsworth House is a stately home in Derbyshire, England. It is the seat of the Duke of Devonshire and has been home to the Cavendish family since 1549. The House is steeped in History and Luxury.
Standing on the east bank of the River Derwent, Chatsworth looks across to the low hills that divide the Derwent and Wye valleys. The house, set in expansive parkland and backed by wooded, rocky hills rising to heather moorland, contains an important collection of paintings, furniture, Old Master drawings, neoclassical sculptures, books and other artefacts.
Chatsworth has been selected as the United Kingdom’s favourite country house several times.
Treat yourself with an ice-cream, which has no analogue in the world!
The setting is so perfect and there is so much to see and do, that one day is definitely not enough, I certainly will come back.
