Your Escorted Chatsworth & The Gardens of the Peak District Holiday Overview

The majestic gardens of the Peak District await us on this fantastic holiday with Garden Expert Iain MacDonald. We’ll stay in the delightful town of Bakewell and enjoy visits to lavish houses and gardens in the surrounding area, including the magnificent Chatsworth House. At the romantic Haddon Hall, we’ll stroll the grounds to see the rose gardens and herbaceous borders, while at Biddulph Grange, we can view the most decadent and exotic series of gardens you will ever see. This trip is ideal for lovers of historical fiction; Chatsworth has provided the location for the filming of period dramas such as ‘Pride & Prejudice’ and ‘The Duchess’.
