This is now a part of our annual Christmas schedule. The theme this year is The Nutcracker and as usual the house is beautifully decorated. Plenty of helpful guides in themed costumes and so much to take in. It was very busy but the scheduled entrance to the house works well. Mulled wine and mince pies in the stables courtyard... More

Went on a tour and had lunch. Very busy and with the Nutcracker theme the house looked amazing. I plan to go back at night. The house itself is steeped with history with a line to a modern family who maintain huge public interest. The gardens are well laid out, beautifully landscaped with natural water directed into uniquely designed falls... More

The folks at Chatsworth have done an excellent job staging the house with a Nutcracker theme. The tour really got our family in the mood for Christmas. Also, the Christmas Market was very well done. It was better organized and offered a broader range of local and regional crafts, goods, and food products than other advertised markets. Book your tickets... More

Beautiful surroundings and great parking. Not many stalls this year but still a great few hours walking round.

We had always wanted to visit this great house. Finally we decided a pre Christmas treat was in order. We took advantage of the nutcracker theme time leading up to Christmas. Although many people, the whole experience was a joy. We followed the visit to the house with a walk in the gardens. Very nice and relaxing. Definitely going back... More

The house was decorated stunningly in this years theme of the nutcracker. The two ballerinas were lovely to watch and put us in the festive spirit. The food in the restaurant was delicious and all homemade. The gardens are always nice to walk around what ever the weather.

Loved the Nutcraker theme in the house. The attention to detail in each room was great, the more you looked the more there was to see. Especially liked the Mouse room! Timed tickets meant the house was not crowded and had plenty of time to take in the decorations as well as the magnificent house itself Restaurant was very busy... More

Visited Chatsworth for the market and a tour of the house decorated for Christmas. The market had an abundance of stalls with some very reasonably priced items. The house was beautifully decorated capturing the story of The Nutcracker. Marked a lovely start to the run up to Christmas.

Had a wonderful time visiting Chatsworth yesterday to see their 2016 Christmas Decorations. The decorations this year were based on The Nutcracker and included a live ballerina dancing through the house. Of all the decorations my favourites had to be in the chapel and the library. My only disappointment was that the usually ornate dining room display had been replaced... More
