Winter Walks, Cosy Cottages and Fabulous Food Make A Wonderful Winter Break at Chatsworth

There are many reasons to visit the Peak District this winter and now Chatsworth is offering yet another with a winter promotion for a stay in one of its charming properties on the estate and other beautiful locations across Derbyshire and the Peak District.

Chatsworth is offering 10 percent off all stays up until March 22 across its stunning portfolio of 18 self catering properties. If further enticement is needed, all winter bookings will receive a £50 voucher to stock up on wonderful produce from the Chatsworth farm shop or at either of the local pubs - the Devonshire Arms at Beeley - recently announced as winner of the Best Gastro Pub at the Derbyshire Food & Drink Awards 2012 for the fourth year running - or the Devonshire Arms at Pilsley, a traditional inn, serving well kept local cask ales and delicious freshly cooked food.

Chatsworth self catering accommodation ranges from the newly renovated cottages - Park Cottage (from £591 per week) and Russian Cottage (from £1064 per week) - with interiors by the Duchess of Devonshire to the charming stone barns (from £441 per week) at Wetton, near Ashbourne, which are ideal for families and larger groups, and have easy access to Dovedale, bike trails and Alton Towers. From converted stone barns to the Hunting Tower (from £1064 per week) above Chatsworth, each of the cottages have their own unique history and atmosphere, and are furnished with a mixture of old and new furniture, interesting pictures and good books.

This winter visitors will also be able to enjoy 'Peak District Artisans at Chatsworth'. The exhibition is a showcase of the stunning work produced by some of the area's finest artisans and is taking place in the Carriage House restaurant from 8 January until 2 March 2013.
