Pretty much everything on the menu comes from the 1000 acre estate: beef, lamb, venison, eggs. They bake their own bread and muffins, make granola and preserve jams. It’s a popular spot for locals and visitors to the Peak District so make sure you book a table for dinner in the smart dining room. After a day exploring prop up the welcoming bar with a pint of Chatsworth Gold.
Visit Chatsworth House and Garden, you might catch an exhibition or seasonal event. There’s a playground and farmyard for families; little ones can bottle feed lambs in the spring. Stroll up to the award-winning Chatsworth Farm Shop for good things to take home or buy the food lover in your life a smart hamper.
Interiors envisioned by the Duchess include tartans, heritage colours and a good few antler chandeliers. Bedrooms are supremely comfortable, some in the pub and some tucked away in the farm house – just what you need after long days out in fresh country air.
