The Tower stands on the escarpment 400 feet above Chatsworth House, on the edge of Stand Wood. There are panoramic views over Capability Brown's magnificent Park. This unique and fascinating building was completed c.1582 for Bess of Hardwick, ancestress of the Dukes of Devonshire, to designs by the famous Elizabethan architect Robert Smythson. Please note that while this cottage is child friendly, we recommend older children only due to the spiral staircase.

The sixteenth century hunting tower may have been a banqueting house or summerhouse and, as its name implies, it was also used by the ladies to watch the hounds working when hunting in the park below. In modern times it was lived in by members of the estate staff and most recently by the Duke's nephew.

After extensive repairs to the fabric of the building, completed in 2003, it was decided to let the Hunting Tower as a holiday home, giving visitors to Chatsworth an oppertunity to stay in this wonderful place. In 2006, a small stone outbuilding to the foot of the tower was converted to provide additional accomodation for larger groups wishing to stay in the Tower.

Dogs are welcomed at a rate of £25 per dog per stay, please advise our reservations team when making your booking that you shall be bringing a dog with you.
