Chatsworth House Bakewell, Derbyshire.

“The eye was instantly caught by Pemberley House, situated on the opposite side of the valley into which the road into some abruptness wound.”

“It was a large, handsome, stone building standing well on rising ground, and backed by a ridge of high woody hills; and in front, a stream of some natural importance was swelled into greater, but without any artificial appearance. Its banks were neither formal, nor falsely adorned.”

~Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice.

In Pride and Prejudice, Chatsworth was used as Pemberley, the residence of Mr. Darcy. It is believed that Jane Austen actually based her idea of Pemberley on Chatsworth House as she wrote the novel while in Bakewell.
