Unprecedented access

Filmed over the entire 2011 season, the documentary camera crews were given unprecedented access to the 35,000-acre Peak District estate and the people who live and work in a world visited by many but known to only a few.

Modern life in a stately home

Over the three episodes, 'Chatsworth' explores the relationships, dynamics and tensions of modern life in a stately home and across the wider estate, including the garden, farmyard, shops, holiday accommodation, pubs, restaurants and much more.

Chatsworth characters

As one of Britain's favourite attractions, Chatsworth draws more than 1 million visitors each year and the series includes stories from the people who live in the local community, those who work and look after the estate, the businesses that are run on the land, and the important role the family and the house play in the area.
