Chatsworth Christmas Market 2022

Posted October 9, 2022

When is Chatsworth Christmas Market 2022?

It’s just been announced – the Chatsworth Christmas Market 2022 starts on Saturday 5th  November 2022 and it’s on until 23th November 2022. The Christmas Market in 2021 was nothing short of fabulous – I admit to going three times to Chatsworth and encouraging my neighbours too.

The one drawback, the parking can be expensive at £20 per car at the weekends and £10 per car weekdays although there is a reduction after 3pm. So of course, get the bus which luckily stops right outside Sheriff Lodge B&B, Matlock. It’s a lovely journey through some pretty little villages in the Peak District. Giving you even more of a feel for this beautiful part of the country and the Derbyshire Dales.

The approach into Chatsworth Estate is of course spectacular and at dusk and dawn the deer are running which is a real sight to behold. You can also visit Chatsworth House during this time, where the Christmas At Chatsworth display will be on from 5th November 2022 also until early January 2023. Again a wonderful sight of giant Christmas Trees, decorated beautifully.

December at Chatsworth House & Estate

The stalls are set up on the hard standing next to Chatsworth House and there are about one hundred twinkling houses all with pretty, tempting presents and goods to make your Christmas so exciting and magical.

There is of course mulled wine, burgers, roasting chestnuts, hog roasts and hot chocolate to name a few of the temptations. That’s before you start on the handmade velvet baubles, fresh door wreaths, small as well as large stockings fillers. I should also mention the luxury soaps, local flavoured gins and exquisite flavoured homemade chocolates. The choirs from the various local churches and societies make the whole experience well worth it. Dogs are very welcome and there are plenty of handmade and commercial presents for them too.

As this year the market opens on 5th November 2022. Anyone would come away from the Chatsworth Christmas Market itching with childish excitement and expectation for the Big Day.

Dog Friendly B&B near Chatsworth

Sheriff Lodge is a dog friendly B&B near Chatsworth and all sizes of dog are welcome.

Many times guests have told me that they have been to hotels or any other sort of accommodation and been turned away because their dog is ‘too big’ or ‘more than a foot high’. This is not the case at Sheriff Lodge. There are three dog friendly rooms at our bed and breakfast, but please call to check availability first. I have never had a problem here with any dog. They are welcome to come to breakfast with you too. I will always check with other guests that they are happy for the dogs to be present, if not then breakfast times can be changed. It’s important that everyone is happy and their stay is the best it can possibly be.

The market at Chatsworth is a great place for dogs too and there are plenty of doggie stalls and places to rest for the dogs. Of course there is the beautiful estate to walk around which they all love. The bus stop is a short walk from the house so they can stretch their legs before the market, where their owners will undoubtedly be stopping to look at all the exciting Christmassy things.

Check back here for more events as they are announced from Chatsworth House.

I can’t wait !
