Edensor

Distance: 12 miles from the Park.

Specially commissioned by the 6th Duke of Devonshire, the custom-built village of Edensor (pronounced ‘Enza’) in Chatsworth Park features a delightful hotch-potch of traditional house designs, from mock Tudor to Swiss cottage.

The 6th Duke decided to demolish the old estate village and rebuild it out of sight in the 19th century, because it spoiled his view of the estate from Chatsworth. Access then, as now, was through a white estate gate Edensor Tea Cottage is housed in the old post office and open all year round.
