We went specifically to see the Christmas decorations in the house ; this year's theme was the Nutcracker. It was well worth the entry fee. The decorations were beautifully displayed and imaginative - a real fairy tale in a perfect setting. Would definitely recommend for children and adults.

Having been charged £4 to park on a muddy field. you then have to pay again to access the grounds at £18. The house is entry is around £60 for two! Far too much for this attraction.

Nipped here on the way back to Manchester from Sheffield and had a lovely couple of hours. House & garden are closed for the Winter, as well as part of the restaurant, but for £4 car parking, we felt it was worth it to wander around the estate (it's massive, so could've spent hours here), peruse the gift shop and...

Sadly the house was closed for winter but we enjoyed a drive round the roads and a photo op on the old Bridge looking towards the magnificent facade. One of the wings is covered in scaffold and sheeting but with a bit of maneuvering still managed a decent camera angle. The deer were also out and about and showed no... More

I love Christmas markets and Chatsworth has been high up on my to do list for quite a few years. Having finally ticked it off I wasn't disappointed. We pre-booked tickets the day before (mainly through last minute paranoia that I had travelled all this way and didn't want to miss out) which saved time the next day as there... More

I visited with my sister and mum at the start of the Christmas market as I wanted to revisit the house which was dressed in th nutcracker theme. I was impressed with how organised it was from the car park which, although there had been a fair bit of rain they had put down plastic matting which really helped. The... More

We visited early December when the Christmas Market was there. Perfect sized market with some interesting stalls as well as the normal Christmas stalls. We didnt go into the house but the grounds and the viewes around the grounds were just amazing. Wonderul photo oportunities.

We had been recommended by friends to go to Chatsworth House and if possible look for a hotel that did a deal with entry tickets for it. Which we did find staying in Sheffield and it wasnt that far to drive to it. Parking is extra when you arrive (I am writing this review some months after our visit in... More
