The Cottage was built following a gift of a model of a Russian Farm to the 6th Duke of Devonshire in 1855 from the brother of Tsar Nicholas of Russia. The Tsar and the 6th Duke had become friends following the Duke’s visit to Russia in 1816 when he served as the British Ambassador to the Coronation.

An exchange visit in 1844 was planned but unfortunately, the Tsar had to cancel his visit. Instead, the Duke was sent an intricate model of a Russian farmhouse as a reminder and keepsake, from which became the inspiration to build Russian Cottage.

We are a dog friendly cottage and dogs are welcomed at a rate of £25 per dog per stay (maximum of two dogs), please contact the reservations team to add a dog to your booking: 01756 718111 or email res@devonshirehotels.co.uk.
