We've hosted this place a number of times and we always love it. It is one of the finest private estate we've ever visited. The views are outstandingly beautiful - particularly in late October when the leaves are dropping. The house is lovely too. Expensive day, but worth it.

I came here on a trip as a student with my university, however I will have to return in my own time again soon so I can have more time to explore the grounds of Chatsworth. This place is a must for those who appreciate art, architecture and sculpture. Even if you don't know much about it, it is still... More

Although I'd hiked in the vicinity before, this was the first time I had actually paid to go into the house and gardens. There is no getting away from the fact that this experience is not cheap, but I was treating my mum for her birthday, and some things are just worth that bit of expense. It's also good to... More

We drove half across England to go here and we weren't disappointed. Well organised and easy to navigate. The staff were fabulous - they spotted my elderly Mum had trouble with stairs and were immediately ushering us to a lift The little train around the garden makes it easy for the elderly and/or infirm.

I have been visiting Chatsworth for most of my life and have seen it transformed into its current state over 7 decades. Upon my latest visit i was shocked to see that the car parking charge is currently £4, this is extortionate especially if you are only planning a short stay! Chatsworth is in danger of pricing itself out of... More

Absolutely the most wonderful country house I've ever been to, without a doubt! We came on a gorgeously sunny autumn day, and we're given a tour of the house with a lovely guide. It's so nice to see the house still being used to display art work and promote local events; there was a chair exhibition happening during our visit,... More

The day we visited happened to be a lovely sunny day. I expected more from the house and it was surrounded by scaffolding which spoilt any pictures of it. The grounds however were amazing and well worth a visit all on their own

Although set in amazing scenery the house was covered in scaffolding because of ongoing work. The rooms open to the public were full of amazing collections that did not appeal to me . It would be best to go on weekends when the windows can be opened as there are no workers then.
