Gardener’s Cottage is Grade II listed and was re-built in the early 19th century. It is situated within Chatsworth Park opposite the village of Edensor. It is the one house that remained when the 6th Duke of Devonshire completed the park landscaping which was started by Lancelot 'Capability' Brown in the 1760s. The reason why Gardener’s Cottage, then named Park House, was spared remains a mystery. Some say it was left so as not to disturb an elderly occupant.
Gardener’s Cottage was refurbished by the Duchess of Devonshire in 2014 and now provides luxurious self catering holiday accommodation for six people.
