Tissington Hall lies in the middle of its own village, and is one of only a handful of privately owned villages left in the UK. Home to the FitzHerbert family since 1609 Tissington Hall welcomes tours of groups and societies throughout the year. Not only is there a fabulous tour of this marvellous 17th century building with its incredible collection of artefacts, paintings and wonderful furniture, the walk around this model Estate Village is a 'must' for anyone visiting the Peak District. Positioned about 5 miles north of Ashbourne
The main part of the building itself houses the Main Hall, the Dining Room, two State Drawing-Rooms and various associated rooms around its centre with the hall facing due East. Over the centuries many wings have been added to the core structure of the house most notably by Joseph Pickford of Derby in the late eighteenth century and then, around 1900, by the eminent architect Arnold Mitchell who constructed the Library and Billiard Room that protrudes from the western side. The Library boasts a collection of over 3000 books that have been collated by the family over the centuries
A must for all is a visit to the 10 acre garden, including a beautiful rose garden, and arboretum. Groups and schools are welcome by prior arrangement.
