We hired cycles at the Tissington cycle centre. The trail to Tissington is gently upward but a bit deceptive as it's quite hard work.Nice to have a couple of stops on the way at cafes on the trail. Best bit was coming back off the pedals most of the way.Quite exhilarating.

Cycled along the Tissington and High Peak trail a few times and always enjoyed it, even though I got royally soaked on one occasion when it poured down for the entire return journey. The Tissington Trail is best started from Ashbourne and it's about 13 miles to the welcome cafe at Parsley Hay. If you don't feel that energetic it's... More

Ample parking, great views & a very nice dog walk & cycle trail, lots of cyclists at peak times/holidays so you need to have your wits about you if you walk your dog off the lead!

We did an afternoon walk - starting in Tissington Village (2hrs free parking) and walk partly on the trail and then lopped back into the village. Beautiful views towards Parwich. Really enjoyable. Think the walk was about 3 miles - we planed in on the OS map as a variant from one of the derbyshire walking website. Lots more to... More

We started at Parsley Hay and cycled to Tissington (10 miles). In hindsight this was maybe a little too far as we found the journey back a bit tiring ! Next time I would start at Alsop and cycle to Parsley Hay. There is a cycle hire shop at Parsley Hay, cafe and toilets. Great seating overlooking the countryside. Lovely... More

The Tissington trail is an old railway line that is now a green walk. Starting at a car park the walk can be as long as you want to go up to about 19 miles and there are green fields of the Peak District either side. You get a lot of cyclists on the trail as well as walkers. There... More

There are a number of walks that can be accessed from Tissington of which we completed one and walked part of another. From the site of the old railway station you can follow the old track north before going across the fields to return through Tissington village. This walk is 2.75 miles long. Look for the derbyshirewalking web site for... More
