Coming Up at… Chatsworth House

Chatsworth House is one of the Peak District’s most
renowned attractions. The house was bought by Bess of Hardwick and William Cavendish in 1549, and has
remained in the Cavendish family for 16 generations. Not only is Chatsworth famous for its beautiful
architecture, charming landscapes and fascinating art collection, but the Estate also hosts some of the
most exciting events that the area has to offer. Here are few of our favourite occasions coming up on
the grounds of the Estate, just ten minutes down the road
from The Peacock:
