  • "We really enjoyed our stay at the Fire Brigade Barn."

    Probably the nicest little cottage we have stayed in. Loved the duck pond in front, provided us with hours of entertainment. Fabulous village. Our only problem was the lack of outside space for our elderly little dog. But this did not spoil our holiday at all.

  • "This is a comfortable, clean and well equipped cottage in a pretty location."

    Tissington Hall is however a wedding venue and loud disco music was played on the Friday and Saturday evening until after 11.30 pm. While it might not bother some people, there was no information about start and finish times, and had we known we would not have stayed here. As numerous reviews have pointed out there is no information about what to do with rubbish or recycling (the very nice neighbours helped out) and a small welcome pack of milk etc would be very welcome given the distance to the nearest supermarket.

    Loved the cottage and the location, with the added bonus of seeing the villagers coming together to set up well dressings.

  • "Fantastic location and outlook - loved it."

    No instructions for central heating. I found the controls and eventually got some nice heat and hot water. A few basic kitchen cleaning aids would be nice- sponge, dishcloth etc Kitchen utensils a bit short - e.g. fish slice Parking instructions would help - a bit awkward.

  • "The cottage is well equipped to a very high standard and is warm and cosy."

    The location is idyllic, looking over the duck pond in the lovely village of Tissington. Our only concern was that there was no secure outside space in which to let our little dog roam, but this was our fault for failing to study the property description. We would heartily recommend this property to prospective clients.

  • "Fire Brigade Barn was the perfect was the prefect place to explore the stunning Peak District."

    A beautifully presented barn with everything you'll need for a holiday exploring the surrounding countryside. You can walk straight out the door and join the Tissignton Trail or out of the village and chose anyone of the many public footpaths up and over the hills. And that bath to enjoy after a long day's walking! We had snow, wind, rain.... but still an amazing outdoorsy holiday with a lovely property to relax and warm up in afterwards.

  • "Spent a lovely week in Tissington."

    Fire Brigade Barn was a lovely bolt hole and the owner could not have been more helpful. There was no dripping tap and noisy clock. The lounge area is very dark if you wish to read, but apart from that we could not fault it. A lovely sized property for two people.

  • "The dripping tap in the kitchen needs sorting and the ticking clock also in the kitchen sounds so loud in the night and there’s also a ticking device plugged in the bedroom, please sort these out so you can get to sleep."

    The village is beautiful but the lack of sleep made for a tiring weekend not a restful one. Also some information about the village and surrounding area would be good.

  • "The property is in a stunning location and is finished to a good standard with a wonderful bathroom and extremely comfy bed, the only disappointing thing is the dripping tap in the kitchen which is really annoying after a while."

    I was hoping after the previous feedback from the last couple of clients that have reported this it would have been fixed. We will book this property again as in such a great location.

  • "The cottage has been decorated and fitted out well, it is set in a beautiful village and the duck pond out the front is an extra bonus."

    The tap in the kitchen drips constantly and can be heard throughout the cottage, rather irritating and a huge waste of water. The bedroom is well fitted out however perhaps have some firmer pillows and an extra blanket in the cupboard for chilly nights. The bathroom has a great bath, just what you need after a long walk or bike ride. Enjoyed our stay, a guest/ information book would have been useful as no information about how to leave the cottage, where to empty the bins etc. We enjoyed our stay, would recommend it. Tissington is a truly chocolate box village.

    The cottage was in an ideal position for us as we wanted to cycle both the Tissington and High Peak Trails. It was lovely to arrive to find milk, tea , coffee etc waiting for us along with a bottle of wine and biscuits. We had to contact the owner during our stay , they responded promptly and were very helpful. I would have liked there to be a ‘guest’ book in the property and was very disappointed that there were no instructions about recycling waste but these are minor points.

    Tissington is a beautiful village set in acres of private parkland.

  • "Fire Brigade Barn interior is done to a high standard, although a private Garden would have topped it off but the duck pond and surrounding village is gorgeous!"

    The two days the sun was shining we would have a glass of wine or cup of tea sat on bench by duck pond. The Ducks where very entertaining and as It was during term time the area was very quiet and minimal traffic or parking issues. After peeping at other cottages in the village and exploring surrounding areas in the peak district we definatly felt Tissington was the prettiest village/town and the Barn was just perfect for 2 people and a 5month old cockapoo. Ashbourne being a short drive of around 6mins which is closest and most substantial town, we highly recommend the George and Dragon Pub for Food and a Drink (also dog friendly) there are also many other pubs and restaurants. If there was a pub in Tissington Village itself it would have perfected the stay for me. A must visit is Dovedale and the stepping stones which is a 10min drive, absolutely gorgeous walk! We got there early morning around 10am so we didn't see a soul (which is good for photo oppurtunitys) but by 11 and lunchtime it was becoming very busy! If we are to return to Peak District in the future, we will defiantly consider returning to Fire Brigade Barn.
