Last weekend we enjoyed a beautiful sunny day at Chatsworth. We decided to have a picnic with friends in the house gardens. The gardens are expansive so even with the crowds there was plenty of space for everyone. It's also not the cheapest of outings but we got our money's worth as we explored for the whole afternoon. Particular favourite spots included the rocks garden which consists of huge boulders that you can climb on. The maze took us ages to figure out and the cascade was pretty impressive. Being peaceful to just relax and with loads of space to run about and explore it offered something for everyone. We enjoyed a well deserved ice cream after a busy day.
