Overview

Tissington Hall was built in 1609 by Francis FitzHerbert to replace the moated fortification that guarded the Norman Church of St Mary’s in the centre of the village.

For over 400 years the Hall has presided over this picturesque Estate Village which is five miles north of the delightful market town of Ashbourne at the southern tip of the Peak District.

Sir Richard inherited the estate and hall in 1989. He lives there with his wife Fiona and it is a home to the four children, six dogs, two cats and a plethora of other animals. Tissington, with its rich history dating back to the eleventh century, is unique in that it is one of only 300 homes in the country that can boast that fact that the descendants of the original builder still live there, 400 years later. The Family welcome visitors from near and far every year and all the staff will ensure your visit is a special one.

Tissington Hall also offers weddings and accommodation.

Accommodation

Tissington is one of the prettiest and most unspoilt villages not only in Derbyshire but in the whole of the country. An avenue of 200 year old lime trees immediately creates an air of expectancy as you drive into the village. On arrival you are welcomed by neat well looked after gardens and limestone cottages, behind wide grass verges and backed by mature trees. The moment you arrive you immediately start to relax and unwind.

There are a variety of cottages to hire at Tissington, as well as the Bridal Suite. See their website for more information.
