The Tower stands on the escarpment 400 feet above Chatsworth House, on the edge of Stand Wood. There are panoramic views over Capability Brown's magnificent Park. This unique and fascinating building was completed c.1582 for Bess of Hardwick, ancestress of the Dukes of Devonshire, to designs by the famous Elizabethan architect Robert Smythson.

In 2006 a small stone outbuilding at the foot of the Tower was converted to provide additional accommodation for larger groups wishing to stay in the Tower.

Please note that while this cottage is child friendly, we recommend older children only due to the spiral staircase.
