A guide to Tissington Village

A guide to Tissington 

Looking for inspiration for a perfect picture village visit? In this, a guide to Tissington we explore its beautiful cottages built around a noble old hall, fine church, and duck pond.

Whichever way you enter Tissington you get a pleasant surprise as this village is as near to a rural idyll as you can get.
From the main gates on the A515 Ashbourne to Buxton Road an elegant avenue of lime trees leads to the first of the pretty cottages alongside the broad wayside lawns.

The lane from Bradbourne sets off through a ford and winds along, up, and down, before slipping into the village by the pond. The village has been the home of the FitzHerbert family for over 400 years and it is their splendid Jacobean residence at the Hall that forms the centre-piece of the beautiful picture that is Tissington.
The church of St Mary is raised up above the village and has a splendid Norman tower and has many fine memorials to the FitzHerbert family.

In a guide to Tissington we explore how Tissington Hall is open to visitors at certain times, or perhaps visit Herbert’s Tea rooms where there is an abundance of outside seating to sit and enjoy watching the world slowly go by whilst enjoying an ice cream or a refreshing drink.

Looking for that unique gift for a friend or family member? A visit to On a Wick candle workshop is sure to inspire. Located just 50 yards from the cattle grid at the entrance to the village, this shop will be sure to inspire you.

Meander through the village and find yourself turning back time at Edward and Vintage, a fantastically quaint old sweet shop, based at Beech Cottage in Chapel Lane. Here you will find an abundance of those childhood sweets of days gone by where you will be invited to take a trip down memory lane.
