Chatsworth House is a must-visit destination, being situated just three and a half miles from Bakewell. Chatsworth is currently the seat of the Dukes of Devonshire; in fact the House itself has been the home of the Cavendish family since 1549. Chatsworth House is famous (amongst many other things) for its beautiful garden that is carefully sculptured and maintained three hundred and sixty five days a year. Chatsworth is the home of a number of unique collections of paintings, drawings, sculpture (particularly neoclassical pieces), furniture and books. It has been voted the countries favourite country house many times over.
Haddon Hall is another popular destination when visiting the area. It sits in spectacular scenery on the River Wye near Bakewell, and it is one of the seats of the Duke of Rutland. It is currently occupied by Lord Edward Manners and his family, and although it was never a true castle it is protected by a wall that was originally constructed in 1195. Haddon Hall is so picturesque that it is used on a regular basis in film and television, with the Hall making its Hollywood debut in 1986 in The Princess Bride. It was also used in the 1996 film Jane Eyre, and the 1998 release Elizabeth. The 2005 version of Pride & Prejudice was also filmed at Haddon Hall, and it has also become known as Thornfield in the BBC version of Jane Eyre that was televised in 2006.
The Rutland Arms Hotel also boasts the unique Rutland Arms Antiques Centre, the stunning Georgian setting being the home for a number of stunning collections of antiquities. The site of the Antiques Centre was originally a stable block that was constructed in 1800 by the Duke of Rutland. The premises have now been fully restored and it attracts a large number of visitors from traders and established buyers through to those interested in getting started in collecting, or those just out to explore the antiques. The Rutland Arms Antiques Centre is proud to boast a highly knowledgeable team that will be able to assist you in any way you require. A number of events are held on a regular basis including antiques fairs, valuation days, talks given by guest speakers and dinners hosted to commemorate historical events.
