Are you thinking of visiting Chatsworth House this weekend? Well I would encourage you to do so!
Yesterday I was walking through the estate and the House looks particularly splendid at this time of year. It's so nice in early Winter to get wrapped up warm and set out from Baslow to walk alongside the River Derwent to Chatsworth House.
You go over the bridge at Nether End in Baslow and then immediately take a right turn in front of a row of very picturesque thatched cottages. Follow the path to the "Kissing Gate" which then takes you on to the Chatsworth Estate. The path leads alongside the river with wonderful vistas of Chatsworth all the way.
If you are coming to Chatsworth this weekend you might like to plan your trip for Sunday and combine your walk with a visit to our Christmas Food and Drink Fair in Baslow.
The event is the ninth in a series of incredibly popular Food Fairs which have been held during 2011 in Baslow Village Hall (next to the Cavendish Hotel and opposite Il Lupo restaurant on the main road through Baslow). Admission is FREE.
There are 20 stalls of artisan food and drink from in and around the Peak District, plenty of xmas gift ideas, a free prize draw and lots of complimentary tastings!!!..... as well as freshly made churros and hot chocolate for sale on the forecourt all day!!
Entry is from 10.30 and we are open until 4.30 pm. It's all happening this Sunday 4th December.
Hope to see you there.
