Set in the heart of the Peak District in Derbyshire is the magnificent Chatsworth House, which is a must to visit if you are ever in the area. You and your family can spend a wonderful day out here, not only inside the hall with its thirty splendid rooms, but outside in the beautiful grounds too.
Walk around and explore the impressive rooms and take in the fine architecture and art collections, and when you arrive at the Painted Hall, look up and admire the fantastic artwork on the ceiling. It truly is amazing. You can also visit the interesting Sculpture Gallery and the newly restored Sketch Galleries. And if you want to have more of a personal experience, meet an Edwardian Lady’s Maid who will reveal some of the clothes her mistress used to wear. You can even dress up in period costumes if that tickles your fancy.
After you have explored the house, why not get some fresh air and take a walk around the 105-acre garden where you will discover a 300-year-old Cascade, which is a trough waterfall in the rockery. You can also have some fun with the children in the huge maze, but don’t worry you won’t get lost for too long. It is great fun and it is well-worth giving it a try. Then after all the excitement, head back to the hall and treat yourself to some well-earned refreshments. Afterwards if you are still feeling energetic, take a visit to the farmyard and the adventure playground.
There is so much to do here, you definitely won’t be bored.
It is a fabulous day out at Chatsworth House.
