Reasons for trip

We came across Tissington Village by accident as it was just up the road from where we were staying in Fenny Bentley,near Ashbourne.

There is no charge to enter the village but we were unable to access Tissington Hall as there was a private function that day .It looked a perfect wedding venue and due to the fact the Fitzherbert family still live there it is only open to visitors 28 days a year. (The charge to visit the Hall & gardens was £9 for adults -£8 for seniors) Although we were disappointed not to be able to look round Tissington Hall especially as the 10 acre gardens include an arboretum & a rose garden we decided to have a leisurely wander around the village. We went into the church and adjacent graveyard then walked by the duck pond. There are a few small businesses in the village – a candle workshop “On a Wick & a Prayer” and “Edward & Vintage”-a 1940’s sweet shop with homemade ice cream & handmade fudge. Tissington nursery is in The Old Kitchen gardens stocking hard to find plant varieties and there is also a Tearoom, a pub and a B&B in this quaint village along with a Butchery with locally sourced meat.

One of the highlights of the village is the annual “Well dressing” festival which runs for 7 days from Ascension Day each year with 6 wells dressed around the village which attracts many visitors. The dates for 2014 are 29th May – 4th June.

It certainly was a relaxing quaint place to visit made even better by the sun making an appearance!
