I visited the farmyard with 2 infants & 3 children. We found there was plenty to keep them amused for several hours. The family tickets for £22 represent excellent value for money when compared with a soft play centre & other adventure farm places. The setting of the house & parkland is absolutely stunning.

Having waited years to visit as the last time I tried we parked in the FREE car park and it was raining so hard we couldn't make it to the door. So, 5 years later, weather cloudy but pleasant, we headed to Chatsworth. The killer view when you arrive disappointing with scaffolding, but hang on before you start i completely... More

Had great fun exploring the gardens and maize. Also had coffee and cake in the restaurant very nice. Shame it's so expensive or we would visit more often.

Went to Chatsworth this summer holiday, and was amazed and so impressed on many fronts. Firstly I would like to say that the resturant we ventured into was impressive to say the least. I ordered Mushroom Strogonof which was served with jacket potato. I have never tasted better, and couldn't have made it better myself! No salt or pepper needed,... More

Had a lovely day out at Chatsworth House. We bought a family ticket that allowed access to the the farm, house and gardens. All were well worth a visit. The farm also has a play area / adventure playground which our 8 year old loved. Overall a good day out. Very well organised and run - all staff are friendly... More

To do a tour is $40 per adult - um, no. Grounds are beautiful, the shop is beautifully curated, and there are three permanent food outlets to choose from. My tip would be to pay the £4 parking and bring a picnic. Save your money for the onsite shop or the farm shop down the road.

We are local to Chatsworth and used to love visiting the gardens and playground with our Friends pass. Today my daughter and myself decided to visit the garden as we hadn't been for a while, oh dear what a disappointment! First of all the cost, £4 to park for a short visit and then £12 plus each for a walk... More

Love visiting Chatsworth house. The gardens are beautifully maintained and so vast. Takes a good few hours to walk around and take it all in properly. There is also the vast estate to explore. Will definitely be back!

We have been many times and are never disappointed! The gardens were beautiful with lots of interest for the children. No 'Keep off the Grass' signs anywhere. It was a hot day and families were paddling in the cascade and picnicking on the lawns. Lots of places to sit down and enjoy the view, lots of water, trees, shade and... More

We visited Chatsworth House for the first time in several years and were shocked at the changes that have taken place. We were travelling on our touring motorbike and were asked to pay £4 just to park. There was no designated spaces for bikes with hardstanding and what made it even worse was that the Range Rover in front of... More
