    A great visit to a fabulous house/home !
    A lovely visit to the fabulous Tissington Hall. Helen and I had gone to Tissington to visit the Candle Workshop and decided, on spec, to visit the Hall. We received a lovely welcome from the lady sat in the front entrance and were told, once we had paid a fee (very reasonable) that a tour was starting in around 10 minutes and we could have a walk around the gardens and report back at 1pm. We did and we were met by David, our tour guide and husband of the lady at the door. We were slightly worried that we were the only two on the tour but this worry was quickly dispelled as we both hit it off with the gentleman and formed a little friendship that allowed for comfortable chat throughout the tour. When we were in the entrance hall we were personally welcomed by the owner of the Hall, Sir Richard, he was very personable and thanked us for attending after asking were we travelled from. It was immediately apparent that this was a family home as well as a historical house and that was what we really liked about the place. Sir Richard clearly has a sense of humour and this was displayed with little touches that I’ll leave your visit to find out. The house is beautiful inside and out. The guide, David I’d very knowledgeable and the highlight really is the fact that it’s a lived in working home. It feels comfortable and personal and well as ancient and stunning. The estate is worth exploring too. The craft shops, the duck pond and the church are all ‘must see’ The hats on the statues will make us smile whenever we remember our visit Thank you for sharing your home with us.

    Unexpected visit.
    Visited Tissington to cycle the trail. Stopped for lunch at Herbert’s, and was surprised to discover that the hall was open. Got in free with HHA membership. The guided route was excellent. Really lovely little house. With an interesting history.

    Wonderful piece of history
    Had a wonderful visit. Greeted by Sir Richard who gave his own frank views on running such a piece of our history. He then handed us over (to Clarke?) for our guided tour which was very informative and interesting, both around the history to the building (and the cost of running such a building) and its occupants. The hall is only open for visits something like 25 days a year so make sure you identify a date when it's open and assist with the running of this hall just on the border of the Derbyshire dales.

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.

Booked our free visit and tour with HHA membership.
Initially introduced my the lord of the manor, then provided with a guided tour by a volunteer.
No photos allowed inside. Plenty of historical info supplied about the Fitzherbert family history.
Gardens are not very big and quite disappointing.
There is accommodation available to rent or venue can be used for weddings.
No toilets available on site, were sent down to adjacent hostelry

Today we visited Tissington Hall and Gardens. We were very impressed by this splendid house, everything is so well preserved and maintained! Also the Gardens are very beautiful with nice varied flowerbeds.
Everyone was very welcoming!

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
