How to get there
The B6102 Baslow to Rowsley road goes through Chatsworth Park. To reach Baslow take the A619 Bakewell - Chesterfield road or the A623 Chapel-en-le-Frith to Chesterfield road. Rowsley lies on the A6 between Bakewell and Matlock. Car parking is provided alongside the house at a charge of £5.00. There is also parking at Calton Lees at the south end of the park (about 1 mile or 1.5 km from the house, but a very pleasant walk across the park). This costs £3.00
By Bus: The 214 Wirksworth - Sheffield bus comes directly to the door. The 170 Bakewell bus from Chesterfield will bring you to Baslow (at least - from Baslow it is a pleasant walk through the park of about 2km) and alternate buses go directly to Chatsworth. For access from Derby or Buxton/Manchester take the Trans Peak Derby->Bakewell->Buxton->Manchester bus and change to the 214 bus in Darley Dale.
By Train: The nearest railway stations are Chesterfield (trains from Sheffield or London) or Matlock (trains from Derby).
