Lyme House, grand yet sober as its owner. Wilton House,in my opinion, too pompous.

I think I'm impartial because I've been to the site of the first Pemberley in England!! It was magnificent!!

Lyme House. Wilton is beautiful but the interior makes me think more of Rosings. I had the impression from the novel that Mr. Darcy's house was simpler in it's interior decorations.

It also helps that at Lyme house the characters seem more comfortable and at home. Wilton is so stately and the blocking for the '05 film was so thought out that it look stiff and unnatural as if it really was the Darcy's home.

I'd have to say that overall Lyme House is closer to what I imagine but that first pic of Chatsworth is gorgeous!

Lyme House, the rooms and the park gave us an elegant and cozy Pemberley. Wilton seemed better suited for Lady Catherine.

I voted for Lyme House because Wilton is too "luxuriant". It's not Mr. Darcy's taste.

I do agree that the Wilton is more lavish than Mr. D's taste would be but we have to acknowledge that he grew up there. It wasn't up to him to furnish the place. And now that his sister lives there she may prefer the elegant style. Also we could stretch our imaginations and wonder if Lady C has insisted on it's style. Good poll!
