Ever since watching Pride & Prejudice in December, I’ve been wanting to visit Chatsworth House. It’s Pemberley, aka the finest house in all of Derbyshire and possibly England, Mr. Darcy’s estate. A lot of things are disappointingly smaller in real life than in photos or movies and what-have-you. Like the Statue of Liberty, for example.
Chatsworth was everything I hoped it would be. I don’t have a lot of interior pictures because it was quite dark inside the house, but the 105 acre garden suited me just fine. It was magnificent, breathtaking, peaceful…and insane. Goodness gracious.
