Chatsworth House, located in Bakewell, Derbyshire (East Midlands of England), about 2 hours away from York, is one of the ten Treasure Houses of England. It consists of four main areas, the house, garden, farmyard and adventure playground. Although we only visited the house and garden it still took us the whole day as this place is MASSIVE.
This place is perfect for those who loves architectures, sculptures, farm animals and gardens. Nevertheless, anyone at any age can definitely enjoy this place. It has everything to offer from a picnic area, farmhouse, a majestic garden area, a very nice café and the house itself is something not-to-be-missed!
1. The HOUSE
The first and definitely the main attraction is the main house building which can be seen from miles away. The parking lot/ bus stop is literally beside the house entrance.
From what I heard, the owner of this house apparently loves sculptures and classic arts so much. So while you’re here try to look out for various sculptures and other artefacts sitting around the house.

2. The Garden
Once you finish with the house tour there is a direct pathway which leads you to the garden by simply following the sign.
On the other side is another main attraction area which is the cascade/small waterfall area on the top of the hill.
The surroundings of Chatsworth House is also worth exploring, especially in a nice sunny day to go across the bridge to the opposite side where all the farm animals area roaming around.

Happy adventure everyone!
