Chatsworth House is a stately home in the Derbyshire Dales 3.5 miles north-east of Bakewell, and 13 miles (25 minutes) from Six Litton Mill (via A6, A6020, and B6048).
The seat of the Duke of Devonshire, it has been home to the Cavendish family since 1549. Standing on the east bank of the River Derwent, it looks across to the low hills between the Derwent and Wye valleys. The house is set in expansive parkland and backed by wooded, rocky hills rising to heather moorland. It contains major collections of paintings, furniture, Old Master drawings, neoclassical sculptures, books and other artefacts.
Chatsworth has been chosen as Britain’s favourite country house several times. In the 2005 film of “Pride and Prejudice”, Chatsworth House was Mr Darcy’s home – Pemberley.
