We headed south to England and visited Chatsworh House. I took this photo of the Falkirk Kelpies from the main highway - they have caused accidents...

CHATSWORTH HOUSE aka Pemberley from Pride and Prejudice.

We had to stop and see on of the most spectacular houses in England and it is the seat of the Duke of Devonshire and it has been home to the Cavendish family since 1549. Why is it spectacular?  Every room is huge - twice the normal height, every ceiling is painted, the rooms are furnished, the sculpture hall is amazing, the artwork is beautiful and the gardens are stunning. It wasn't cheap to enter as it is not part of the National Trust but is now part of a family trust and it's a business with a great gift shop, cafes and restaurant. I loved it.

The House has been used in many films and television shows but my favourite is the 2005 version of Pride and Prejudice with Matthew McFadyen and Keira Knightly.
