We called here after many years since our last visit. Never changes from a peaceful location that is enjoyed by many visitors. Very well maintained area that offers the traveller interesting times. The church has a Saxon cross base & a very old christening font. The houses & business properties are a pleasure to photograph. Friendly locals who give information on their home life & are obviously very content with their situation. My photos tell their own story. Will revisit when able. Thank you for the warm welcome.

Stayed at the Gardener's Cottage within Tissington village. Very relaxing and lots to do nearby; whether that be walking, cycling or driving to villages and towns nearby. Cottage is surrounded by sheep, ducks and cattle with no noise from vehicular traffic. A lovely nights sleep in beautiful surroundings.

The Hall and grounds were closed due to covid restrictions but the village is amazing. We took 3 children who loved walking around, looking at the history and ducks 🤣 . The traditional sweet shop was open and its an awesome place selling classic sweets, fudge and ice creams. It's a fascinating village steeped in history and intrest. Beautiful place

Did not get a friendly welcome at all, went to the local "eatery" only to be turned away because we had our dogs with us

Booked the evening tour this year, with mince pies and mulled wine, and ghost stories. Magical. Last year’s sleeping beauty was great but this year’s Neverland was brilliant. Please go!

Tissington is worth a visit in its own right. The tea rooms are very good, but take time to wander round the village. Pause by the duck pond. Linger at the wells, whether they are dressed or not. Go to the Tissington Trail car park and have a stroll along the trail, taking in the wild flowers and blossom at the right time of year. We always visit Tissington.

Perhaps the best guided tour of a stately home I've experienced by a lovely gentleman called Paul. Beautiful house, gardens and village, the epitome of England!

Wow wow wow Peter Pan Neverland Amazing from being greeted by Sir Richard at the gates. He is such a welcoming and smiling chappy he was about for our tour joining in and explaining about the treasures etc.. He welcomed us all and made a fuss
of the only little boy in the queue telling him about what to look for the little fella was smiling from ear to ear. It was our first time inside Tissington Hall. It definitely won't be our last . It is fantastic what ever your age. The scenery and the displays transport you into the story. It's magical regardless of your age. I loved the window scene has you go through it lol I became Tinkerbell lol. I want to tell you all about it. However I want you to experience it yourselves. It is fantastic value for your money. We loved it so thank you to Sir Richard for sharing his home with us. Thank you to the lovely staff chatting and making us feel so welcome. Most of all I want to a MASSIVE 💓 thank you to David the creater of this awesome experience and creating this from a adult mind yet seeing it through a child's eye's lol
Please please go visit him in his quintessental sweet shop. It to is magical he is so very welcoming and he truly believes in his creation. Also pop in the cafe they do mouth watering food and cake's. We totally loved and enjoyed our early Christmas day out.

My wife and I drove through the village the day before and were blown away by how beautiful it was so the following day we opted to take a guided tour around the Tissington Hall family home of Sir Richard Fitzherbert.
We love castles and stately homes especially old family residences. Even better are those that are still inhabited by the family themselves so this I thought Sirtainly Fitz the bill!
We had a guide Brian who was not only very knowledgeable but also had a great, wicked sense of humour!
Immediately prior to our guided tour whilst we were queuing in the entrance foyer, a very tall upright gentleman came out to talk with us and the lady at the desk about the poor state of the grass there due to the extremely dry conditions and generally just chat with us prior to our tour. This gentleman was Sir Richard himself and the lady on the desk told us he actually conducts tours of the Hall himself and is a very accomplished tour guide. Well I suppose he might well be as he knows the house like it was his own!!!
I won't spoil the tour for you but rather tell you it is an excellent experience with some marvellous and sad family tales, intriguing history and beautiful furniture, paintings and artefacts. Most Haunted have even visited and spent the night there... again I'll leave that till you go there yourselves.
Worth every penny of the £10 entry fee.
I will go again for sure but only if I could have Sir Richard as my tour guide. I should like to ask him more about........... that would be telling!
Totally loved the afternoon.
