The almost legendary palace of Chatsworth has been presided over by the same family for more than 450 years. Here, Deborah, Duchess of Devonshire tells the story of the estate that surrounds it. Many within a couple of miles of the house were inspired by the imagination of one of the dukes. It is these that the Duchess describes.

Review:

The achievement of [this book] is its portrayal in miniature of the changes in English rural life since the war, while apparently making no pretensions to any such intent (House & Garden)

Charmingly written with all the expected Mitford verve and wit. (Spectator)

A charming volume that really gets to the heart of Chatsworth (Daily Express)

Browsing through is like being transported to a simpler, less flashy age of cookery. (Food & Wine)

About the Author:

Deborah, Dowager Duchess of Devonshire is the youngest of the seven children of the second Baron Redesdale and sister of the writers Nancy and Jessica Mitford and Diana Mosley. The Duke and Duchess lived at Chatsworth from 1950 on and lovingly restored the house and gardens.
