With October fast approaching, the brighter, warmer days are coming to an end and, like the rest of us, you’ll want to squeeze every last breath out of the remaining summer. Here at Mercure Sheffield Parkway, we want to help dispel those post summer holiday blues…what we need is something interesting, fun and affordable…well, lucky for you, we have just the thing! Say hello to the Chatsworth House Package.
If you haven’t been to Chatsworth House, then you’re missing out on experiencing an integral part of English history; the building acts as a timeline, representing the tastes, passions and interests of 16 generations of the Cavendish family. This truly magnificent piece of architecture is home to 30 rooms, ready to explore, full of beautiful period pieces and interesting historical artefacts. These rooms include the Painted Hall, regal State Rooms, Sketch Galleries and Guest Bedrooms with spectacular Edwardian designs. One of the highlights of the house are the works of art it contains; these span 4000 years and include Roman and Egyptian sculptures, masterpieces by Rembrandt and Reynolds and modern work by Lucian Freud and David Nash.
To make the most of what’s left of the warm weather, make sure to explore Chatsworth gardens. The 105 acre landscape is tended to by a team of 20 gardeners, who make sure to preserve the gardens history alongside introducing contemporary elements. Visit the famous waterworks (the squirting willow tree fountain is one of our favourites) and walk the five miles of pathways framed by rare trees, shrubs and streams.
The delights of Chatsworth House and Gardens are never-ending, but with Christmas coming we understand that it could be a bit of a stretch….however, with our package, you don’t have to worry about splurging!
The Chatsworth House and Garden package includes two nights’ accommodation, with dinner on the first night and breakfast both mornings alongside a visit to the Chatsworth House and Gardens. All of this for just £89 per person.
