The Case, designed by Paxton in 1838 to protect tender plants such as figs and peaches, is a dominant feature of the estate. It evolves as a glorious set of interconnected glass and filigree buildings of varying heights. THE CAVENDISH HOTEL, a rambling stone building in the stylish village of Baslow, looks out on the countryside toward Chatsworth's Hunting Tower. A pleasant stroll through the park's open fields takes you to the main house, perched at the edge of the Chatsworth estate. Filled with original antiques intermingled with contemporary pieces and artworks plucked from the family's collections, the rooms feature huge fireplaces. The tweed-jacketed staff can arrange cycling in the Peak District. CHATSWORTH HOLIDAY COTTAGES, located on the estate, offer a variety of private options, such as the 16 th -century Hunting Tower, which sits over an escarpment 400 feet above Chatsworth House at the edge of Stand Wood. This fascinating vertical pile, completed in 1582 for Bess of Hardwick, may have been a banqueting or summer house but was also used by ladies to observe the working hounds in the park below. The tall, eerie-looking building with a spiral staircase sleeps four. The one-story Russian Cottage feels equally fairy-tale. Snuggled on a secluded road beyond Bluebell Woods, the charming building was inspired by a model of a Russian Farmhouse sent to the 6th Duke after the tsar canceled a visit to the estate. Near Haddon Hall, at THE PEACOCK AT ROWSLEY, Lord and Lady Edward Manners offer 15 beautifully appointed rooms and an award-winning restaurant. The 17 th -century building has been a hotel since the 1830s—it's pet-friendly, and sporting options, including fly-fishing on the River Derwent and Derbyshire Wye, can be arranged. Arne Maynard designed the picturesque riverfront garden. THE DEVONSHIRE ARMS AT BEELEY is an 18 th -century coaching inn once favored by Charles Dickens. Still popular with those who love its cozy bar and modern Brasserie decorated by the duchess herself, it is known for its locally sourced fare, including English cheeses, Derbyshire lamb, and Wye Valley asparagus. Fourteen comfortable bed- rooms make it a perfect pausing destination. FISCHER'S BASLOW HALL is a boutique country-house hotel on the edge of the Chatsworth estate. Perched on the picturesque village of Baslow, the elegant manor offers 11 bedrooms and an award-winning restaurant specializing in local products such as Derby shire pork, lamb, venison, and native fish with vegetables from the kitchen garden. Even if you are staying elsewhere, be sure to have a meal here during your visit. WHERE TO STAY Lucky travelers to this beautiful corner of Derbyshire in the Peak District National Park have several well-appointed hotels and cottages to choose from, all within easy proximity of both estates.
