Manchester, England, United Kingdom
Chatsworth House is one of England’s most popular stately homes and it is located just 5 kilometres from Bakewell in North Derbyshire. It is the home of the Duke of Devonshire it set on expansive parkland overlooking the River Derwent.
The magnificent home was built as a gift for Sir William Cavendish in the first half of the 16th century for his good deeds as a leading commissioner in the dissolution of the monasteries. Famously the home was also used to imprison Mary Queen of Scots for a time.
The home is overwhelmingly beautiful and well worth a visit. Some favourite features of Chatsworth House are the ornately painted Tiepolo ceiling inside the main house; getting lost in the hedge maze; the grand Hunting Tower and the stables. Chatsworth House is a lot of fun and a well worthwhile place to visit while in Derbyshire.
