It’s all happening at Chatsworth House in Bakewell

If you’re lucky enough to be staying in one of our Peak District Holiday Cottages this autumn, then you have got a real treat in store!

As we say goodbye to summer, Chatsworth House will be home to a number of events for you to enjoy during your stay with us.

Country Fair Fun

Chatsworth House will be welcoming in September with their annual Country Fair. Running from the 1st – 3rd September, this is a fun filled event which always gets great reviews each year.

Touted as one of England’s most spectacular outdoor events, Chatsworth Country Fair boasts something for everyone; from horseback displays to motorcycle stunts and aerobatics!

If that doesn’t take your fancy, why not watch some of the nation’s best-known chefs cook up a storm in the Fine Food Village?
