Chatsworth House & Gardens

I can strongly recommend a visit to Chatsworth House.
The house, gardens and estate are lovely.
The unusual fact that photography is allowed inside the house made the visit very special for me.
I would like to thank The Duke and his Staff and can assure them of our return in the future.

We returned in June 2009 and now, in September, we are very much looking forward to our next visit.
