The Peak District Guide
The 1,000-acre park on the banks of the River Derwent was primarily designed by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown during the 1760s. Chatsworth House has been influenced by some of the most popular artists and designers of their time, including William Kent, George London, Lancelot Brown, Jeffry Wyatville and Joseph Paxton. The entrance to Stand wood can be found next to farmyard and playground. This is shown on the welcome map at the Chatsworth car park entrance.
Today Chatsworth park contains both traditional and new architecture and art including James Paine's bridges and mill, Queen Mary's Bower and horse jumps from the Chatsworth International Horse Trials. It is also home to many deer, sheep, cows and lots of wildwood animals. Stand Wood provides a magnificent backdrop for Chatsworth house, and contains a fascinating diversity of animals. Discover the many paths through Stand Wood and the old park and explore at your leisure.
Chatsworth is also party to a delightful collection of places to holiday. The Chatsworth Estate offers the triple AA rosette hotels, cottages and barn conversions, sustainably hand crafted shepherd's huts and rural village country inns.
