Chatsworth House

Chatsworth House in Derbyshire is the home of the Duke of Devonshire and has been the family seat since 1549. Set in magnificent landscaped gardens with open fields and a river for a backdrop there are few places that can compare in terms of grandeur.

Located on the banks of the River Derwent this impressive estate with its woodland and hills has an impressive number of buildings on the estate. The Hunting Tower is a particulary impressive structure. 

Chatsworth is an extremely popular destination and one of the UK's most visited historic houses. Set in the Peak District  you could easily spend a day here looking around the buildings and exploring the 1000 acre parkland.
