Designed by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown in the 1760’s; Chatsworth Park is a 1000 acre land. It consists of a deer park, the village of Edensor, Stand Wood and a garden centre. Chatsworth Park is home to many wild animals including the Red Deer and Fallow Deer, sheep and cattle. Every part of the land provides you something or other. While the woods provide you with timber, the lake provides you with fish and the grass you will walk on has been grazed by sheep. The river Derwent can easily be seen from Chatsworth house. Home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, Chatsworth is the home of almost 4000 years worth of art. While the house is open to the public, so is the park. The park is open for picnics and walks whenever you want for free.
