Chatsworth at Christmas

This year, I had the pleasure of taking my family to the Chatsworth House Christmas Market. I had visited the house last year over the festive period, but attending the market this year made me realise how much I missed last time I visited!

The market is filled with festive stalls and sheltered areas are dotted around where you can sit and eat your lunch and where live bands/singer play Christmas songs throughout the day. This gave the market such a community feel with some folk stopping to join in with a sing song!

Each year, the house is decorated in a different theme and this year way 'fairy tales'. I didn't think the boys would enjoy the house, but they loved walking through and seeing all the decorations in each room.

We ate sooo much, we ran around the playground (which was virtually empty due to a light rain drizzle) and we got lost in the maze.
I can't think of a better way to kick off our Christmas festivities! One word of warning though, whilst the market is free to visit, it cost £20 to park so we spotted lots of people parking off grounds and walking in. You also need to book tickets to visit the house and we pre-booked online - I'd advise doing this in advance as there were few tickets left on the day and you don't want to miss out seeing the house in all it's glory!
