Chatworth House is the home of Duchess Deborah....it dates back 400 years and is full of history. The photo I have took does not do the house any justice at all. You can enter the house for a fee of approximately seven pounds, there is a wide range of things to see inside covering historical matters, art and cultural themes. To venture inside prepare yourself for 2-4 hours, the house is that big and there aremany interesting things to see. Outisde the house there is the royal gardens and an area for the children to visit that houses typical english wildlife and farm animals. There is an adventure playground also for the children, quite a large garden center for the adults. The grounds the house is situated in make an excellant area for walking or picnics. There is a large amount of sheep wandering around the grounds and also wild deer...but I have not been lucky enough to see them.
Chatsworth is an excellent place to visit at Christmas time when it is all geared up in a traditional Christmas theme.
