The rock garden
We tried to get through the maze, but it was a little too clever for us...
Bluebells are in bloom
The gardens are amazing--we didn't get to see them when we visited Chatsworth last time (Dec 2011), so it was great to come back in better weather.
We had a lovely picnic--I made a pancetta, spinach and mushroom quiche!
We're a bit squinty--it was so sunny, and definitely the hottest day of the year so far!
The Great Hall
The ceiling is amazing
The same shot, decorated for Christmas, back in 2011
The tour took us on a slightly different route this time--the view was amazing from this side of the house
I love this bathtub in a wardrobe--the term 'water closet' makes so much more sense now!
These filigree pieces are so gorgeous and delicate
The Cascade from the top
The water was so cold!
There were lots of free-range sheep, some of which wandered into the road
