In Your Easter Bonnet

Children can make their own Easter Bonnets in the Barn. And on Easter Monday March 24th they can take part in the Easter Parade.

What Else Can You See or Do at Chatsworth?

Well there is the house itself.

You can wander through the rooms that are filled with examples of magnificent craftsmanship and art treasures collected over five centuries.

Or are you the outdoor type?  Walk through the gardens and admire their flowers and trees, and spectacular waterworks.  The youngsters are encouraged to walk and play here in the garden, and in the surrounding park.


But the big attraction for younger members of the family – there is the farmyard and adventure playground.

The farmyard is home to many animals and their young.

Have you seen a cow being milked?  Demonstrations are daily. And you can learn how to handle the animals, especially the young animals. The children will learn how not to hurt them when playing with them.

There are cows, pigs, goats, sheep, horses, chickens and fish.


You and the children can learn more about the farmyard animals and their development and how they are used in food production.

Depending on what time of the year you go; the farmyard has a calendar of displays and activities. Eg New Life Weeks, Rural Skills Week, Harvest Week and Christmas Nativity Weeks from mid November.

The Adventure Playground is a must see / play in for the kids.  There is fabulous water play and spiral slides.


The huge and varied woodland adventure playground is for kids from 9 to 90. It has been built to the highest International standards of safety.

The young children can explore the sand and water play areas, while older children can see how skilful they are on towers, ropewalks, the spiral slide and commando wire. It is recommended that you let the kids play there for at least an hour – to save tears and tantrums and that’s from grandma.
