The Chatsworth Estate has an excellent reputation for hospitality, with our holiday cottages all set in beautiful locations across the estate in Derbyshire and the Peak District. From converted stone barns to the Hunting Tower, all the buildings that form our holiday cottage collection have their own unique history and atmosphere.

The 12th Duke and the Duchess take a great personal interest in the planning and decoration of the holiday cottages, and they are furnished with a mixture of the old and new, original and interesting artwork and book collections, giving them a homely feel.
What is the capacity for Chatsworth Estate Holiday Cottages?
The Upperdale Cottages can all be booked alongside each other providing accommodation for up to 18 guests. Some of our cottages are pet friendly.
What can guests enjoy when staying in the Bakewell area?
Bakewell is the only market town within the Peak District National Park boundary and its attractive courtyards, independent shops, cafés and its location on the River Wye make it a hugely popular destination for tourists to the Peak District.
Bakewell is best known for a confection made by mistake. In the 19th century a cook at the Rutland Arms was baking a jam tart but misunderstood the recipe and so Bakewell Pudding was created. Now almost every visitor to the town samples this culinary delight. The fine spire of All Saints Church looks down on the town, where there are some grand old houses, notably the Market Hall, The Old Town Hall and the Almshouses on South Church Street.
Where can guests enjoy food and drink?
When you arrive at your beautiful holiday location at Chatsworth we think it would be nice to know that you have some essential foods in your refrigerator and store cupboard. Here at Chatsworth we produce fresh food every day of the week including freshly baked bread and cakes, home made sausages, cured bacon, cooked meats, pies and so much more, so you can upgrade your stay with one of our welcome hampers.
