Russian Cottage

Part of the Chatsworth Collection

Russian Cottage was built following a gift of a model of a Russian Farm to the 6th Duke of Devonshire in 1855 from the brother of Tsar Nicholas of Russia. The Tsar and the 6th Duke had become friends following the Duke's visit to Russia in 1816 when he served as the British Ambassador to the Coronation. An exchange visit in 1844 was planned but unfortunately the Tsar had to cancel his visit. Instead the Duke was sent an intricate model of a Russian farmhouse as a reminder and keepsake, from which came the inspiration to build Russian Cottage.

“It's hard to imagine anything better than what we have experienced; peaceful, magical setting, exceptionally comfortable and well equipped cottage, so much to do within easy striking distance. It's been ideal for two couples, with two bathrooms. Honestly, this is about as close to perfection as holiday accommodation gets!”
