Just got home having been to afternoon in the Cavendish Restaurant and round the house with super decorations to the theme of 'The Nutcracker'. In the restaurant catered well for two of our party who are gluten free. Tour round the house was great. One of our party is in a wheelchair and the staff could not have been more... More

Very disappointed, the Nutcracker decorations looked tacky and didn't suit a grand house. The Christmas trees and garlands looked great. The other decorations might appeal to very young children.

Visited Chatsworth yesterday (Thursday 8th December) with my wife to view the Christmas Decorations. This was our 2nd visit having visited previously about 6 years ago. The house is in a stunning setting in the Derwent Valley and the spacious grounds are indeed impressive. However, you could not really have the full affect of the house , as part was... More

We have visited Chatsworth on many occasions but usually in the summer and have stayed largely in the beautiful gardens and grounds. We decided to pay a winter visit and were really looking forward to seeing the house decorated for Christmas, What a disappointment - cheap, tacky decorations, and a silly theme. Despite having a bounty of fresh flora and... More

Thank you for taking the time to comment regarding your recent visit to Chatsworth; we really do appreciate feedback from our visitors. We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the Christmas displays in the house this year. The appreciation of what is done in the house for Christmas is very subjective and it is sadly not possible... More

We were able to walk around the gardens and enjoy outside as well as the inside. It was very busy,however everything was excellently organised. Even the... More

What a magnificent house, beautiful decorations for Christmas, helpful and friendly staff in all areas and the booking times run like clockwork. The grounds are fabulous and although it was a very chilly day we made the most of it. Steeped in history we will be returning in the New Year to have another look.

Fabulous stalls with plenty of ideas for Christmas presents and the house was simply gorgeous. Food in the restaurant was top notch and the Chatsworth shops were fabulous. Got hubby his Christmas present from... More

This is a beautiful house made to look like a cheap theme park at Christmas. Go when the decorations are down and there's less people.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your visit to Chatsworth; all the feedback we receive is much appreciated. Until we began winter opening in 2001, the entire house was closed in the winter. We have offered visitors a separate Christmas season since that time, and our Christmas displays take place in the house each year from the... More

I took my parents at the end of November and we had a wonderful day. It was very busy but we did expect this and we were really impressed at how organised everything was to cope with this from the parking to entering the house. The staff were really friendly and someone was never far away to ask directions or... More
