Chatsworth House as the RHS Chatsworth Flower Show 2018

Well the 2018 RHS Chatsworth House flower show is over. Most of our guests who stayed last week were here to enjoy a day at the show. As the week went on the array of plants in our garden grew. But we were just temporary minders and waterers. They have now all dispersed, with their new owners, to different parts of the UK to their new gardens. Tickets for the RHS Chatsworth 2020 are now on sale, visit this page for more information.

We paid a visit to the show on Sunday. The day seemed to get hotter and hotter but it was ideal to enjoy the show. From entering the grounds, we were parked in a few minutes, warmly greeted when we arrived at the show entrance and immediately started to enjoy the sights and sounds of everything on offer at RHS Chatsworth.

We could not resist some more wonderful glass flowers from Juliet Forrest Glass and copper poppies from Myburgh Designs.

There was the wonderful orchid display in the Great Conservatory by Jonathan Mosley and a superb range of growers and nurseries, all willing to answer questions and offer advice. The range of exhibitors this year was wonderful. From garden ornaments, sculptures, maps the delicious variety of food and drink.

There was a good selection of show gardens, in particular we enjoyed the long border gardens this year. It was so impressive to see that some of the designers are still horticultural students.

All of this was set with the backdrop of Chatsworth House and Estate, simply idyllic surroundings.

And the consensus? It was an overwhelming success. Roll on 2019

  One of the best if not the best guest house I have stayed in rooms were spotlessly clean, location was brilliant, and the owner went the extra mile to make sure everything was ok, booked again for later in the year and the lemon drizzle cake was to die for and a lovely touch

  This is such a lovely place to stay - definitely one of the best guest houses I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting. My room was gorgeous and had all the essentials, plus lots of added extras. Having a decent sized fridge in there was a great touch! And I loved my evenings sitting in the guest lounge with a glass of complementary port! Breakfast was delicious and Damien and Adrian are so lovely, their attention to detail and friendly service is what makes this place so special. I stayed here as I was attending a local course, but I’m already planning to come back for a leisure stay with my husband to show him how wonderful this place is.

  We initially were led to this establishment as it has an electric car charging point (free to use) but Glendon House proved to be a real find for us. The room was both stylish and very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble. For example, we were welcomed with a pot of green tea and most delicious cake and lovely gluten free alternative. In fact we will officially award them the best gluten-free breakfast ever, in our opinion!
