Please note that while this cottage is child-friendly, we recommend it for older children only, due to the steep spiral staircase that provides access to all floors. This may also cause problems for those with mobility issues. The access to the Hunting Tower involves a magnificent semi-private woodland drive through Stand Wood.
The sixteenth-century Hunting Tower may have been a banqueting house or summerhouse and, as its name implies, it was also used by the ladies to watch the hounds working when hunting in the park below. In modern times it was lived in by members of The Estate staff and, most recently, by the Duke’s nephew.
After extensive repairs to the fabric of the building, it was decided to let the Hunting Tower as a holiday home, giving visitors to Chatsworth an opportunity to stay in this wonderful place. In addition, a small stone outbuilding to the foot of the tower was converted to provide additional accommodation for larger groups wishing to stay in the Tower.
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 email@example.com.
