“Beautiful family home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014

Lovely to see such a beautiful house being lived in and enjoyed by a family A pleasure and a privilege to visit and be shown around by a knowledgable and friendly guide Visited over the well dressing weekend which was interesting to see A delightful village in a beautiful part of the world We visited Derbyshire at short notice and had wanted to stay in Nurses cottage but sadly the estate couldn't be flexible with dates-even though these were available so we stayed in a nearby village and walked across to Tissington The village is all part of the estate and a delight to walk around Lovely cafe and delightful old fashioned sweet shop that shouldn't be missed

“A place of immense charm”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

Whilst staying in Derbyshire, we were told by the B&B owner that we shouldn't miss a visit to both the village of Tissington and Tissington Hall. Decided that the hall should be the main event with any remaining time to amble around the village. We were just 2 couples being shown around the hall, by an excellent and entertaining guide, I believe named Paul. With just 4 of us, he was able to give individual attention to us and his warmth and love of the place, evident. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit here and spent some time roaming around the gardens after. Well worth the entrance fee. Looked in at the Church opposite and the churchyard and walked towards the end of the village where there is a candle shop. Visited neither the shop, nor the tea rooms, but I heard from others that the tea rooms are very good.

“A gem of a place to visit.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014

Tissington Hall in Tissington village is a member of The Historic Houses Association and well worth a visit, but be sure to call ahead and make sure they are open to avoid disappointment. We were so lucky that the Hall was open during our recent stay in Derbyshire and so enjoyed learning about the house, it's history and the Fitzherbert family from our wonderful guide, Joy.
