Cavendish Hotel

About Cavendish Hotel

The Cavendish is operated by Peak Leisure Management on behalf of Chatsworth Trustees. A closely-knit team is dedicated to looking after guests as individuals, not simply room numbers.

The Hotel exudes a quiet elegance; overlooking the Chatsworth Estate, an extensive collection of original artwork, antiques, charming furnishings and decor all maintained in a continuous programme of improvements and contributing to that elusive dimension - tranquility. Add to that the view from the window of your bedroom - no traffic, just fields - and you begin to understand the lure of the Cavendish.

Standard Bedroom Accommodation

All the Cavendish bedrooms overlook Chatsworth Estate in The Peak District and are luxuriously appointed with twin or double beds, private bathrooms with bath and shower, direct-dial phone, computer modems, television, hairdryer, refrigerated bar and beverage facility.
