Chatsworth Gardens, Farmyard, Playground, and Grounds

After we explored Chatsworth House (see part 1 for that), we explored the gardens and the rest of what Chatsworth had to offer…

Chatsworth House Gardens

Chatsworth Gardens

When you think of ‘Garden’ you might think of lawns and flowers. Well, Chatsworth House has plenty of those and much, much more.

The gardens are massive and are landscaped into many different themes. At every turn, there was something new to see.

There’s also plenty of follies, so you can spend a good amount of time exploring the area.

Watch our video below.

There were lots of interesting sculptures, a grotto to find, a maze which we all really enjoyed. So lots to engage the kids with and keep it interesting for them. All the little streams and bridges to make it more enjoyable for them.

Chatsworth House Parkland

Chatsworth Grounds

The Parkland around the house doesn’t require any ticket other than the cost of parking (which was £4 when we visited).

There’re many good walks. Some over gentle rolling grassland, and some up steep wooded hills with rocky outcrops.

Of course, being an 18C estate, there are plenty of follies and things to find too.

There’s a good climb up to the tower where you can get impressive views of the landscape and parkland.

Chatsworth House Farm and Play Park

Chatsworth Farmyard

The Farm and Play Park is a separate entry ticket to the main house.

The farm and play park is well worth a visit. The farm area is quite small nicely kept and maintained. There are horses, donkeys, goats, cows and pigs to see.

A litter of piglets caught our eye, and we stopped for a while to watch them play. There are talks and hands-on sessions with the animals so watch out for those when you visit.

Chatsworth Playground

The adventure playpark went down a storm with the kids, they loved it, and we could have probably spent a lot longer there than we did.

The playground is a good size with an appreciable variety of play equipment with an area for younger children too.

The zip wire was very popular with the children and lots of parents having a go too 😉

There was plenty of picnic tables scattered around for mum and dad to grab a coffee and watch the kids let off a bit of steam!
