ProThe gardens, the staff, the maze

ConsGardens are weather dependant

Chatsworth has 2 faces for me depending on who I go with. With the family it's always the adventure playground and farm, with a friend it's the house and gardens. In that sense there is definitely something for everyone. Let's start with the "grown-up" bit. The house itself belongs to the Duke...
