It was at Chatsworth House, Derbyshire, that we started our ‘mother and daughter week’, over a week ago now ;(.
It was a glorious day, although not quite as warm as the photos make out.
The outstanding external proportions of the house always take my breath away but it was the first time we had seen further than the first floor rooms usually decorated for Christmas.
Room after room displayed the total indulgence of a man turning a country residence into a Baroque Palace, but the bedrooms were truly beautiful with hand painted exotic wall papers and extravagant bed drapes finished off with exquisite trimmings and tassels.
A tour around the gardens after lunch and an ice cream completed our lovely girly day out.
I would definitely recommend a visit. We’ll be back at Christmas.
Love, Lucie xx
