As if the house wasn't enough then we toured the grounds which were spectacular!
This cascading fountain is one of the first gravity fed fountains in the world.
There are 3 lakes that were dug up the mountain to provide water to Chatsworth house. The lake feeds this cascade and the canal lake below that you see in the Pride & Prejudice movie (forgot to take a picture of...dang it)
The Grotto house was originally built in the late 1790's at the instigation of Duchess Georgiana.
I laughed the I saw these evergreen trees, they reminded me of Veggie Tale characters:)
A Texas star in England?:)
Below is what once was the horse stables...not too shabby!
Oh Chatsworth, you are beautiful! But I am leaving with my very own Mr. Darcy to our happy little life in Texas with bare feet, comfy couches for Netflix and dinner on paper plates:) We'll leave the fancy living to the Duke & Duchess!
