"Excellent for kids…"
We bought an annual pass last year and it was well worth it, we use the farm and the gardens in all weathers and the kids never get tired off it, bring swimming trunks/changes of clothes and always bring a picnic as it's hard to tear the kids away for food and can be expensive to eat. Always a lovely atmosphere and in the playground the kids all work together on the sand pit and with the Archimedes screw.Read moreLess
"I have been to Chatsworth several times and it's one…"
I have been to Chatsworth several times and it's one of the best places around the North West to take the whole family. It is quite expensive but there are group discounts available and it's worth booking in advance for your 10% off. You can also keep costs down by bringing your own food. I am not from the UK originally so it's always on the agenda for my continental visitors (and they are always VERY impressed) and my 4 year old - she just loves the gardens, fountains, playground and the farm. That playground is the best playground I have been to in the UK. There is everything for all ages. Sand, water, trampoline, climing frames, slides, swings, tunnels... just fabulous. I must admit I have never made it into the house mainly as there is so much to do outdoors and the weather has always been great when I went there. Def recommended!Read moreLess
"Another one who has never made it inside the house…"
Another one who has never made it inside the house despite two visits but our children just love mucking around in the gardens and playing on the adventure playground and petting the animals in the mini farm. Wonderful water feature to splash in and good food, if a tad dear but all these places are. Great if you're juggling a few generations - grannies can enjoy the house while children play in the gardens/ playground and then everyone can meet for lunch/tea. BrillRead moreLess

"I love Chatsworth! The house, the gardens, the scenery, all…"
I love Chatsworth! The house, the gardens, the scenery, all top notch. If you like visiting stately homes then you mustn't miss this one. Truly spectacular.
I'm bit of a Mitford fan so I was keen to see Chatsworth because of this connection, and there was plenty of Mitford memorabilia to keep me amused.
The food was expensive and the service disappointing, but everyone else seemed happy enough.
We only had an afternoon to see the house and the gardens and I think Chatsworth could easily occupy a 2 day visit.Read moreLess
"We repeatedly go to the farm, especially the adeventure playground…"
We repeatedly go to the farm, especially the adeventure playground at the top: fabulous sandpits, archimedes screws lifting water from the streams, climbing structures - we love it.
The gardens are super to run round, but we haven't yet dared take our active boys into the main house!
Parking a distance from the activities, and separate entrance fees and queues.Read moreLess
"I recently took my daughter to a day out at…"
I recently took my daughter to a day out at Chatsworth and it was fantastic. The House was not her thing except for the dress up room and the paintings on the ceilings. But what made our day was the freedom she had to run in the gardens, which we didn't get all the way round - next time maybe. Plus the Farmyard was brilliant, she got to hold the small animals and play for several hours in the activity playgound - There was sand everywhere.
Finally for the adults - breathtaking views / beautiful House and yummy food especially the icecream. A must if you are in DerbyshireRead moreLess
