Chatsworth House, garden and farmyard reopen for a new season on Mothering Sunday, with another full programme of exciting events and exhibitions.

The stately home is gearing up to host the perfect day out for families looking to treat mum tomorrow.

There will be a complimentary nail bar in the farmyard, as well as baby animals to meet, and in the garden, all children will be given a daffodil to present to their mum.

With sculpture, paintings and drawings by the Scottish artist William Turnbull on show in the North Sketch Gallery and in the garden and Landscapes in the Old Master Drawings Cabinet featuring 10 drawings by Rembrandt, also opening on Sunday, there is something for families of all ages to enjoy.

The Cavendish rooms are also offering afternoon tea from 3pm to 4.30pm every day with scones and cakes freshly baked daily at Chatsworth.

Later this month, an exhibition of beautiful watercolours painted by Emma Tennant, the Duke’s sister will go on display in the house.

Inspired by the 6th Duke of Devonshire’s plant list, unearthed from the Chatsworth archives by Emma, the exhibition opens on March 24.

There will also be plenty happening over the Easter break at Chatsworth, with events taking place from 29 March to 14 April including an Easter Egg trail in the house, a golden egg hunt in the garden, special visits from the Easter bunny, horse and dray rides, face painting and of course the hugely popular Easter Egg hunt taking place over the Bank Holiday weekend.
