Terms and conditions

Please spare a moment to read this; we’ve kept it as brief as we can.

Membership is valid for entry on all open days for 12 months from when you join; we’re open every day from mid-March until early January, and the farmyard and adventure playground are also open during February half-term. Please note the farmyard and adventure playground are closed during the country fair, but there will be a farmyard stand at this event. Reserving Friends tickets in advance is essential during Christmas, early November to the beginning of January and recommended year round.

Membership cards are not transferable. Children aged 15 or under must be accompanied by an adult at all attractions and organised events. Accompanying adults are responsible for supervising the children in their care at all times.

Unnamed guests may only visit with the named card holder. Please note that if you buy an unnamed adult or child entitlement, you may bring along one guest to Chatsworth per membership – not per adult card. All adult members must have a photo on the admissions system.

Unfortunately, we cannot refund complimentary tickets, should the event(s) be completely or partially cancelled due to circumstances beyond our control.

Refer a Friend

As a current Friend, if you refer a friend to become a Friend of Chatsworth, you will receive a £10 voucher to spend in the Chatsworth Estate Farm Shop at Pilsley as a thank you from us.

All you have to do is make sure your friend names you on their membership application form.

Important information
The referral scheme only applies to new Friends and not Friends who renew their membership.

If your membership has lapsed this must have been by a minimum of two years. The referring Friend must have a valid membership to qualify for the reward and they are entitled to one voucher per joining group.
