I first came across Chatsworth House watching the 2005 adaptation of Pride and Prejudice where it doubles up as brooding Mr Darcy's country residence. Chatsworth is the ancestral home of the Dukes of Devonshire and it is one of Britains most beautiful country houses.
After a £15million overhaul the house is now open to the public again and shines forth!
