Grade II listed with enchanting charm

Gardener’s Cottage is Grade II listed. It is situated in the same position as the one house that remained when the 6th Duke completed his landscaping improvements in the 1760s. The entire village of Edensor was moved, but this cottage remained, it is believed because it was out of sight of the house sitting in a natural dip.

The reason why Gardener’s Cottage, then named Park House, was spared remains a mystery. Some say it was left so as not to disturb an elderly occupant, others say that as it isn’t visible from Chatsworth House its removal wasn’t required under the landscaping plans.

The cottage was refurbished by the Duchess of Devonshire and now provides luxurious self-catering holiday accommodation for six people. It was renamed at the time, taking its name from the occupation of the previous occupier.

Dogs are welcomed at a rate of £35 per dog per stay, please contact the reservations team to add a dog to your booking: 01756 718111 or email There is an abundance of things to do with your dog in the Peaks.
