Families are making the most of Easter school holidays to visit the farmyard and playground which reopened on Tuesday this week.

Jonathan Fish, head of marketing, said: “It was wonderful to see so many people back at Chatsworth for the reopening, especially families meeting the animals in the farmyard and children enjoying the adventure playground.

“The sun was shining and visitors made the most of the weather, exploring the newly opened areas of the garden, which is looking fabulous at the moment as all the flowers are coming into bloom. The day had a real feel of celebration about it for visitors and for colleagues."
