About this spot
Chatsworth House is the Peak District’s premier stately home and often voted the
UK’s most popular country house. The house is situated just under 4 miles away from Bakewell, in the rolling landscape of the Derwent Valley.

The main house itself was originally completed in the 1560s, though many alterations have been made since then, to showcase how it is today. The extent to which the estate was designed, went as far as diverting the River Derwent that runs through the park to fit the feel of the area. Such beauty has led to it being used in films such as Pride and Prejudice. Over 300,000 people visit and enjoy the
gardens within the house grounds each year.

Nowadays, the area is a beauty spot for all to enjoy. The park is 1,000 acres, with the majority of it being free of charge to visit. There is an entrance fee to enter the gardens and house, but they offer further photographic opportunities and well worth a visit.
