For a taste of life on the Chatsworth Estate, book yourself in for a stay at The Cavendish Hotel in Baslow. This country house hotel is firmly rooted in the Duke of Devonshire’s vast 35,000-acre estate in the Peak District – and you’ll feel that while you’re here. Renovated in 2024 by interior designer Nicola Harding, bedrooms are inspired by Chatworth's history, art and interiors, including locally woven fabrics and glazed ceramic lamps, and they offer views across the parkland surrounding the estate itself, while the hotel’s two restaurants use fresh produce from its gardens.

Part of the outstanding collection of Devonshire Hotels & Restaurants, the style here is as classic as the destination, and while each of the 28 bedrooms is different, they all share the same aesthetic. Quality carpets, curtains and upholstery soften the crisp white linen on the beds. And whether you book a 'Cosy' room or a 'Canine Retreat', all boast stunning countryside outlooks. The difference comes in the size. For example, the 'Spacious' rooms have a seating area and fine art from the family’s private collection adorns the walls, while the 'Splendid Suite' has a four-poster and the duplex 'Townhouse Suite' boasts a private entrance and a king-size bed.

The hotel may have a classic appeal but it’s contemporary where it counts. En-suite bathrooms have underfloor heating, heated towel rails and high-quality toiletries. Every room has complimentary WiFi, a Bluetooth speaker and a flat-screen TV. Downstairs, there's a choice of two restaurants. There’s the fine dining of the three-AA-rosette Gallery Restaurant or the relaxed warmth of The Garden Room, which opens to the outside in warmer weather.

From the terrace around the hotel, you’ll probably be tempted further into the great outdoors. After all, this is what this place is all about. The Chatsworth Estate offers seemingly endless walks through parkland and woodland. The magnificent house at its centre is open for public viewing and has a vast collection of artwork on the walls. Outside, its landscaped gardens are a further attraction. Beyond that? Well, this is the Peak District, so there’s a whole National Park to explore.

Dual aspect country view

Lovely corner bedroom (No 20) with dual aspect windows overlooking fields. The bedroom was nicely decorated, and the electric fan was much appreciated. Good shower and toiletries. The bed was comfortable, and the hairdryer, long mirror in the wardrobe, dressing table, and chest of drawers were very useful. All the staff were welcoming and attentive. Breakfast was tasty and well presented. There was also a good choice on the breakfast menu (The Chatsworth ginger and lemon biscuits in our room were a lovely treat). We both loved the new Garden Room and terrace. The view from the GR made us think we were in Italy. (Just lovely). The gardens were beautifully maintained, and we loved the quirky layout of the corridors to the rooms. We didn't eat in the restaurant on this visit, but when we visited in March we enjoyed both the surroundings and food.
