Tissington is a beautiful little village in the Peak District National Park. Famous for its well dressings, Tissington invites you to come along and soak up the atmosphere of this well-managed estate village with its duck pond, quaint cottages, church, tea rooms and impressive old hall. It's a very pretty village and a perfect place from which to enjoy the many sights of the Peak District. A fabulous area for outdoor pursuits, the Tissington Trail cycle path is located close by, little over a mile to the east of the village. Dovedale, one of England's photographed beauty spots with its iconic stepping stones, is close by and must not be missed! There are many varied walks, climbing opportunities and cycle routes in the area, and this is also an ideal base for days out at Alton Towers, impressive Chatsworth House, or enjoying the watersports at Carsington Water. The nearby market town of Ashbourne, once a fashionable social centre of the 18th century, boasts an eccentric street plan, with charming cobbled alleyways littered with old market stalls and welcoming coaching inns. Many fine Georgian buildings remain, hosting a good selection of restaurants, wine bars and interesting antique shops.
