    Quality shouts out.
    Yes it is somewhat expensive but the food is top quality & presented in a very favourable way. There is almost everything you need for a wholesome meal & sweet stuff to make even the devout slimmer tempted with the choices available. Clean thoughout & staff are helpful & wear a smile. We stocked up the freezer with individual meat pies on this visit. Thank you to all concerned with our visit.

    Nice treats
    We always pop in when visiting Chatsworth as is worth a visit if you're in the area. Can be hard to park when busy. Quite expensive but we like the ice cream and sweet treats. Sell nice things to give as presents.

    Lovely local produce available
    I visited the farm shop after about a 10-15 minute drive from my campsite to pick up some supplies. Whilst it is not the cheapest place to buy food and drink (there is a perfectly good Aldi in Bakewell if you are on a tight budget), the farm shop offers some lovely local produce and does sell everything you need. I racked up a bill of over £70, but I feel it is worth telling you what I bought for that; £70 bought me a bottle of lovely English white wine (from one of the most northerly vineyards in the world) and 3 bottles of local Peak ales. From the butcher counter I bought a back of bacon, 3 delicious pork and tomato sausages (these were stunning!), 3 lamb burgers, 3 smoky maple pork ribs. From the veg area I bought a pack of sprouting broccoli, a large green courgette, a large yellow courgette and 3 lovely big tomatoes. I bought a back of rolls (there wasn't much bread choice left sadly as I was quite late in the day). From the deli I bought some mixed olives, a pack of lovely salami and some chocolate and chilli cheese. I also bought a delicious beetroot and goats cheese salad that my step son absolutely steamed into. I also bought a packet of crisps at the tills. Service at the counters and tills was great- lady gave me a box to save me buying a bag. Overall a very positive experience. They have a little coffee area too but I couldn't stop as I had to get back to my dog in the car (which is the only downside in that dogs are not allowed- fortunately the weather was awful!) The car park is huge and I was able to park up right outside the shop despite it being busy.

    Excellent find - great quality, choice and service
    Excellent farm shop our first visit. Staying in Castleton this farm shop became our go to for supplies for our weeks stay. It’s about a 30 minute drive. The shop has a wide variety of fresh meat and fish. It has a vast deli counter, cheeses, sausage rolls, scotch eggs, quiches, fresh cakes. The homemade meat pies are the best I’ve tasted (we bought two during our stay) not cheap at £11.99 each but I’ve never had such tender meat and the pie was packed with chucks of steak meat in an ale gravy, the pastry was crisp and short how it should be ! They also sell meat & potato pie, just steak pie, chicken ham and leek, and lamb and mint. If it’s just for two they sell a chunky slice of pie for £5.49 enough for two. The fresh gravy for the pies is to die for too. Plenty of fresh veg and fruit too. We can recommend the Brie and tomato individual quiches and the homemade apple pie that is generous packed with fruit. The veg was very fresh and delicious. There’s plenty of choice in terms of fresh fruit pies, cakes, sweet treats, pastries, yogurts (Longley farm) which are the best. My sister can recommend a slice of the white chocolate and raspberry meringue roulade that’s on the deli counter £2.99 a slice and a very generous portion too! There really is everything you need to create a delicious meal. It is on the pricey side but considering we are out on our first night and it cost us over £15 each without wine the food we bought here cost about £6 a head each night … One we didn’t try but we were amazed at the value was the individual boxed cream teas - a giant scone, little jar of jam, a pot of roddas clotted cream .. £5.99 … We stopped in the cafe too - which is around the side and back of the farm shop, with toilets. We had a dog with us - they are allowed in the outside courtyard of the cafe…you might need to queue it is very busy. The view from the courtyard is panoramic. Table service. There is a large indoor seating area too. We had the cheddar cheese and red pinion chutney sandwich on granary bloomer bread (you can choose white bloomer) it was delicious and fresh, came with coleslaw, crisps, and a bit of salad. Delicious. My sister had the garlic mushrooms on sourdough (overwhelming on the garlic front) with Parmesan shavings and rocket. Prices for the sandwich was £7.95 we shared as we were not ravenous plenty for two to share. Certainly somewhere I’d try again. There is also a hatch serving hot drinks to takeaway at the other side of the farm shop as you enter the car park great if you just want to pick up and go or the cafe is too busy. Would thoroughly recommend this farm shop if you are not on a tight budget but in my opinion you get value for your money ! Great friendly service from everyone we encountered on our visits this holiday

    Regular to the Chatsworth Farm Shop and on most occasions it is busy. Produce always well presented and refreshed. Shop wisely as it is easy to get carried away and load up your basket with ‘extras’. Much of the produce is ‘Chatsworth’ branded but produced / grown off the estate. Extends into a mini marque at Christmas with stock that is not good value. Pleasant cafe at the back with views. Ample parking but best avoid bank holidays and weekends.

    Excellent friendly and helpful staff.
    This is the most friendly and welcoming shop I have ever been to. I visited it three times during my three day break and everyone was most helpful. The butchery department were very patience with my large order early on Saturday morning. The check out too was cheery and helpful. Such a lovely place to visit and see all the items beautifully displayed especially at Christmas. Thank you Chatsworth Team.

Will someone please tell the staff at the cafe that a) there is no need to insist on name and phone number when customers have checked in with the track and trace app. They argued that not everyone has a smart phone. True enough but I’d pointed out that I’d scanned their QR bar code. I’d go as far as to say that the lady was quite unpleasant. Shame.
And b) that although times are trying they are allowed to smile. Take a leaf from the book of the ladies at the cafe in Edensor.

After a lovely walk at Carsington water, decided to make extra 17 mile trip to Chatsworth farm shop, which is usually a must visit when in area. What a disappointment!. Only had to queue for about ten minutes to get inside and was very impressed with sanitising facilities at entrance.however as I was also looking to purchase vegetables which are beyond entrance outside, I had to leave the queue and to enable me to go inside shop afterwards had to rejoin the queue leaving me to receive very disapproving looks from other customers still in queue. One of the items I purchased was a Bakewell pudding at £5.95. Absolutely AWFUL. Millimetres deep, never been near ground almonds, just tasted synthetic of cheap almond essence, AVOID. Staff were not particularly friendly either and all seemed to be a bit down. Overall a very disappointing visit.

Shopped today having not been for a couple of years. Supposed to open at 9am as advertised. After leaving around a dozen people in the cold and pouring rain finally decided to open after 9.15am. Stock was good but not as good as we remembered. We shopped as a couple as allowed and this was fine but for some unknown reason on getting to the tills I was told "One person at the till" "Get out, get out" (there were no signs) I started to leave and was then told by the grey haired lady on the till "Not that way!" So instead of walking down a wide aisle passed other shoppers I was supposed to know that I should have walked behind the tills passing all their staff!! Rudeness is understating things and will never go back. Perhaps someone from the shop might have the decency to explain and apologise. Otherwise don't waste your time going here.

Thank you for your comments. We apologise for the lateness of us opening the store on the day of your visit. This was due to us having to ensure we have our stock delivery on the shelves before customers enter the store to protect our team and ensure social distancing. We explain as our customers enter the store and on our covid 19 signage that only one person can stay at the till point to pay. The reason for asking for this, is to help with social distancing at the checkouts, protecting our team and other customers. We apologise if you felt this was done a rude manner, i will speak to the team to ensure this is communicated politely.

I was once served at Chatsworth Farm Shop by the Duchess of Devonshire. How things have changed, We now have staff standing by the door counting people and glaring at them. Getting us used to being bullied, for martial law I suppose. Chatsworth Farm Shop without the late Duchess gets poorer by the day. Once one of the finest food shops, now a very poor imitation. I got to the till and was told to “get behind ze line” by an unsmiling youth, their attitudes are disgraceful. Sad times.

Another farm shop knocking out pork pies, flavoured teas, chutneys, posh crisps, etc. If you like a cheese riddled with chives and warthog, or something like that, this is the place for you. Pretentious food at ridiculous prices.
The quality is there with the price tags to match. Sadly you need to be the Duke Of Devonshire to afford to shop there and even his family might baulk at the cost after a 'big shop'.
It's a lovely shop, a gorgeous part of the world, but take out a mortgage to shop there. You'd hardly notice the difference if you pick up similar goods in a supermarket and simply pretend it's farm shop goods. You'd never know, but your wallet will.

Fabulous range of foods and drinks to tempt people into trying something different. A lot of the food products are locally sourced, particularly the fresh meets, breads, vegetables, cakes and drink, to name a few. Service is excellent and it's very difficult to leave the shop with an empty basket! Prices are very reasonable for the quality and uniqueness of the wide range of products on sale. Easy to find - well signed - and plenty of free car parking spaces available. Located next to the Chatsworth Estate Coffee and tea rooms ( which use the foods on sale at the shop). Well worth a visit.

We have visited the farm shop many times and always have a good display and plenty of choice especially in the Butchery.
We think it is getting very expensive. A Cauliflower was £1.65 when you can buy in many places for £1.00 . It is a little like Harrods have come to the Country. The Gammon Joints were nearly twice as much as we would pay at a high class butcher in Lincolnshire.

After tour of estate we decided we required something to eat and decided to pop into the shop and cafe. Great choice, I had a smashing roast beef lunch whilst wife had mushrooms on sour dough and some fries, this was also lovely. Then went into shop which was also great, only problem is that we were visiting and do not live local as butchers and fish looked amazing.
Well worth a visit if near as no need to go to house as can visit independently as not in grounds. But is well signposted
