Breathtaking Chatsworth Holiday Properties

The Chatsworth Estate is often described as the Jewel in the Crown of the Peak District National Park. With a magnificent stately home set in 100 acres of beautiful gardens and over 1,000 acres of parkland, it’s easy to see why it’s so popular with locals and visitors alike. But imagine if you could be more than just a day visitor to this breathtaking area, and instead spend time in one of the exclusive houses owned by Chatsworth Boltholes? From delightful shepherds huts for 2 or 4, cosy thatched cottages just perfect for 2, to characterful converted stables and barns that sleep up to 10, many of which are located within or close to the Chatsworth Estate, these unique properties make the perfect base for a truly unforgettable and exclusive holiday in the Peak District. You can even stay in the spectacular Hunting Tower, built in 1582 for Bess of Hardwick and commanding panoramic views over the countryside, or the charming Gardener’s Cottage, watching the deer graze as the sun rises. With Chatsworth Boltholes you really can live the dream – for a few days at least!
