The farmyard was open for the half term week but was expensive( £30 for 4 adults & 2 children - no concessions for seniors or children over 3) and a poor experience certainly for the 2 yr & 4 yr old with us. The few animals did not look at all happy and the cowboy theme was weird - a... More

Visited this site today with the grandchildren as we have done many times. Unfortunately Chatsworth is changing under the new Duke. Prepare to be ripped off at ever turn. Car Park now up to £4 , and this is before you get to the Farmyard. Here the rates have gone up again to £22. There seems to be no restriction... More

A manageable walk from Baslow around Chatsworth Estate. What a shame scaffolding blocks most of the view of the house. Hopefully the renovations will be finished soon so visitors can really enjoy Chatsworth. Lovely grounds. We loved seeing the deer which are allowed to wander freely in the park. A very expensive tea /coffee from the restaurant in the stable... More

On a recent road trip up to the Peak District with a fellow Austen enthusiast we knew that stopping at Chatsworth was non-negotiable. We lucked out and found ourselves there on a beautiful day, arriving at around 10am, and we found ways to occupy ourselves until 4pm. The house itself, while marvellously decorated, does not take that long to tour... More

Great spot for kids with lots of nice animals to see and touch. Good spots for snacks and easy walking. The playground itself is top notch and exciting for all ages. Stanley loved the hydraulics section and the roped walkways. Trouble is after an hour in there it is difficult to extract them and there could be tears on the... More

It's not cheap to get in, but is probably good value as we spent five hours there. Interiors very ornate & rather overwhelming; some interesting modern art on display such as Lucien Freud. Extensive gardens including Dan Pearson's relocated Chelsea Show winning garden, & Paxton's rock garden with gigantic rocks. Modern outdoor sculptures too, though not permanent, including one by...

Stopped by to enjoy and take a coffee break, the location and building is amazing and although we have visited many times over the years we had never actually entered into the cafe area. Although the first impression were impressive the actual setting was very disappointing along with the food and coffee!

Went just before Christmas to have a look around the building. What a lovely place with plenty to do. Not really my thing old buildings but this certainly fitted the bill. Think it would be even better in Summer
